Update to my journey as a caregiver.

Started by

Good afternoon,

My days as a caregiver have come to a close. On October 22, 2014, my grams finally passed. Her last couple of days became peaceful, gratefully. This last year was hard watching her and listening. She was not happy and became more uncomfortable and miserable as the days wore on.

Towards the end she was in search of her husband and wanted to go home to him. She is finally there. Her memorial service is this Saturday.

My next adventure is caring for myself. Back to building a business and guiding others. When it is my father's turn I will be there for him.

I was blessed to be available for my grams this past year despite the trials and tribulations. I learned so much about me, took my recovery even deeper than it has ever been.

I remain grateful for every aspect of caregiving my grams. I send you blessings and prayers that you find the resources, that you never give up, that you find the respite and the Divine in your journey.

Bless you and thank you for being a part of my journey and always inspiring me.

I am sorry for your loss.Take some time to recover yourself physically/mentally.Learn from your experiences in caring for your grandmother that will help you in the future care of your dad.
