I was standing in the kitchen tonight, thinking to myself how tired I am! It also crossed my mind that the holidays are upon us and following that comes the New Year! What will it bring? I pray that I and all caregivers r given the support, love and faith to be what we need and want to be. Most of all, I pray r loved one(s) know that we love and want them here for as long as God sees fit. Personally I want to bring up the topic of taking care of ourselves! I have been a mother, wife, friend, sometimes sister, and caregiver for 11 years! Maybe 2012 will finally be the year, that I start considering myself in this equation! Maybe I can lose the 30 pounds I have gained. Maybe I can take a short time and exercise. Maybe I will spend some time on me, which will make me a better wife, mother, friend and caregiver! Anyone else interested? I could use the support and friendship.
