To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

  1. I saw Diane Sawyer interviewing Maria Shriver on the news last night on this very topic. They were saying that the stress for caregivers rates a 5 out of 5. It seems like everybody I know who has a parent with it worries that they, too, will get it. My brother said that he hopes it will skip a generation.
    Hope your mom is doing well.

  2. The Good Morning America and Diane Sawyer segment this week.... has really made me do some heavy thinking about the stress of care giving......I do believe the #5..... I'm 5 1/2 right now.... Thanks Karen, and I hope you are taking care of yourself!

  3. Mom is good and I am go between a 3 and a 6 on the stress level. Thanks ladies for your comments.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
