….And then, in May and June of 2021, things turned dramatically harder being a caregiver for My Love. I had to give my full attention to his needs. I knew these stories would still be right here. I hoped those who found help here would still return here for information because I was not removing the site. I just could no longer nurture it.
And then, six months later, in 2022 January, My Loved passed and went to a better place.

💘 Grief has not been so easy. I will return to attend to this site at some point. But the information here, for the most part, still can be helpful, still can encourage caregivers as I’ve been doing since I began writing my first blog, in June 2018. Please remember self care!!

To make our world a better place:
Throw kindness around like confetti, and each day do something to make others smile and your heart sing. thank you, Judy Shone, 💕 host of Accepting the Gift of Caregiving site/blog.

  1. Mari, thank you. Yes, I miss My Love terribly. One day I will continue writing stories and giving suggestions here… and hopefully will complete the final book of the Accepting the Gift of Caregiving series. I wish you well.


  2. I am sorry to hear that your husband died. Your blog, and your books, too, have helped me these last couple years. Thank you.


Share a caregiving experience or leave a note here. Thank you. 🌷
