We Share a Common Bond

This is a continuation of the last blog.  I would again like to introduce you to my friend Kathy Wheeler. Please note that she has a new blog address listed at the bottom. We share a bond with many others too. All I have to do is say the word Alzheimer's. Silently you may shake your head and think, "I know."
 Kathy and I write about our experiences with a family member who suffered this disease. We both have the honor of sharing our stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul Think Positive Book and The Chicken Soup for the Soul Family Caregivers. I wonder when Chicken Soup will come out with a book for the Alzheimer's Soul. (I guess I should check to see if they already have or not.) I bet they would be flooded with submissions because we, meaning many of you, along with us have plenty of stories to share. We not only have experiences, but we have also gained a great amount of wisdom to share with others. Kathy writes a blog that promotes awareness of Alzheimer's and highlights current issues. You will see how she engages you in a way that brings your compassion to an active level. Please take a look at her blog. We as a society need to support each other and recognize the courageous spirit that keeps us going onward. Her most recent post is about Glenn Campbell.

  1. Thanks, Jean. I'm certainly glad you and I have gotten to know each other better, so there are some positive things that can come out of such a horrible thing as Alzheimer's. I got my box full of books last night in the mail and read your beautiful story "Dry Her Tears." Well done, my friend! Keep up the great work and writing. I'm looking forward to our book signing at Barnes & Noble together!
