As You Care for Another
Such a wealth of information in here Janice - thank you for sharing.
I've never heard of an electronic therapy dog before. It's interesting to know how well it worked for Dan. Thank you for the list of 20 questions Janice. I have already asked most of them but it did get me thinking.
Perfect reasons for me to get a dog and a cat. I've had 5 cats in the past, all rescues. I really want to choose a dog and rescue a cat.
I asked my parents so many questions and it was like pulling teeth to get answers. My mother reluctantly eeked out some information long after my father was gone. I bought each a book that held prompt questions for them to share their lives with me. My father wrote nothing except a couple inspirational ditties on cocktail napkins. He did buy me the book 'A Short Guide to a Happy Life' by Anna Quindlen and signed with a note. It's the most precious memento I have of him. My mother wrote all sorts of quotes on random papers and napkins shared with me throughout the later years. My favorite was that I was precious and "joie de vivre" was what she thought of when she thought of me... precious forever in my heart.
They were the silent generation aptly named for good reason.
Great read, as always. Thank you.
There is some wonderful guidance here. And the part about the dog that is an electronic one had me laughing but also appreciating that we will take our dog love in whatever form we can get it. Janice, I suspect you help so many with your newsletters.
I appreciate the 20 interview questions, Janice. It is too late now for me to ask them to my mom, but they would be wonderful personalized writing prompts. Answering them autobiographically would provide information about who you really were, for your grown children and grandchildren. Thank you.
I have the same picture, and one with a yelow flower, each making their way through cement...for me, that is a symbol of hope, of growth, and of love of life everywhere.
