As we may have mentioned once or twice ;), we’re both great fans of April’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. Set up by Arlee Bird back in 2009, it’s grown like topsy since that time. As neither David nor I are able to participate again this year, we decided instead to highlight one (or more) blogs each day, to encourage you to visit, to make new friends, and to find some entertainment during the current crazy world we’re in.
Some of these highlights will be old friends we’ve made during previous challenges, but some will be new. We don’t plan to stick to any theme other than maintaining a (possibly tenuous) connection to the letter of the day.
Today’s letter is I
For today, I’d like to add:
I Just Have to Say has a somewhat unusual theme – Shirley Dietz shares the lessons she has learned from being a carer to her husband, who is suffering from Lewy Body Dementia, and a companion/carer to her elderly mother. Having been part of the family team of carers for my father when he suffered from two forms of dementia, this is a subject close to my heart. Shirley’s A-Z blogs posts to date cover everything from the practical to the emotional. that this is by no means a depressing read is entirely due to Shirley’s can-do nature and empathy.
If you’re catching up, here’s our previous highlights …
Let us know of other blogs connected to the letter I which we should read.
