Fun, Fun, Fun and tears

I have done two events this week that I just have to talk about. One was me reading “Badger the Dog” and putting on a school program where I had an entire gymnasium full of kids cheering and yelling, and listening. That was awesome. The school was awesome and the teachers were awesome. I know, I know, overuse of that word awesome, but when it comes to kids – there is no better word.

The other event was a discussion group with Alzheimer’s caregivers and one person afflicted with the disease was also there. I can’t begin to say how much I appreciate their having me come, allowing me to speak and share and hear their input. My applause goes out to the caregivers in the world. They are simply wonderful human beings and deserve so much praise. They will be blessed in the long run, I know, but the short run is what is hard to handle, so please, find a way to thank someone you know who is caring for a terminally ill person, whether at home, or hospice, or a hospital. They are special people and I know for a fact – how far a thank you goes to bolster a person for the long run.
