Hello, and Happy Holidays to Caregivers. I thought I would start this topic for anyone who needs to connect and chat about the trials and blessings of this holiday period. It can be a hard, lonely climb for many caregivers this time of year. This year, I will be doing the cooking, and although Im not sure if my wife will be able to eat much of it; we are both looking forward to spending a quiet Christmas Day together. Even when she cannot eat what I cook, she enjoys the smells, sights, and sounds of David creating another one of his "miracles in the kitchen." We will hang on to the little things that give us a sense of peace and connections, and the rest we wont worry about.
How is your holiday unfolding this year? Please share anything you are comfortable with. I know I have had some years where I just wanted to hide during the holidays, but could not. Hopefully, we can touch base a bit here and compare notes.
