We have good days and we have bad days. Hope you will follow along....A TO Z!
The A to Z Challenge has come to an end.
It has been a zany, crazy blend.
Of things I do everyday to care for the man.
Who lives in my house.
Who still holds my hand.
He's zany and crazy most of the time.
I'm zapped of my strength.
I can no longer rhyme.
This challenge is over.
I hope it was fun.
I hope you learned something
About caring for 'one'.
For now I am zonked.
I will need to take a break.
But please come back and visit often
For Goodness sake.
Hi Paula .. I will - and you've certainly given us all food for thought as you've rhymed your way through the letters of the day ... not as big a challenge as you have looking after your zany man ... but I wish you a good time off from blogging - and hope you'll be back on occasions to give us more food for thought ... with many good wishes and all the best - HilaryReplyDelete
Thanks for coming each day Hilary. I have enjoyed getting to know youDelete

Congratulations! Even though I didn't always comment, I read every post and followed the journey with you. Bravo!ReplyDelete
thanks Kwiz. That means a lot to meDelete
Thank you Elaine....I know that you know the storyDelete
You did well telling your story! It makes one think of the challenges of care giving and also what to maybe put in place before one comes to that part of their life if they find themselves there. I will definitely be back :)ReplyDelete
Thank you betty...we never know when the day will comeDelete
Dear Paula, I have become very fond of you, so of course I will be back. In the meantime, I will keep thinking of you, hoping you are holding up OK considering everything.ReplyDelete
Thank you Inger. You have become a new friendDelete
I have enjoyed your poems so much this month. You have done such a great job capturing a caregiver's life. Loving your spirit!ReplyDelete
Thank you Lisa. As you well know, each day is a challengeDelete
Yay! And she ends with a ditty! What a cute way to tie it all up. I've enjoyed your series, and think it's amazing who universal your experiences are. Hold in there. You're not alone. =)ReplyDelete

All your posts throughout the AtoZ Challenge were awesome and amazing. I will be a regular visitor, and pray for you. I'm too young to say anything more. I can only look for inspirations.ReplyDelete
