So Uplifted!

My friends in the Tuesdays with Deborah blogspace.

You will not believe me. I hope Deborah Drake might chime in with a comment affirming that this is true. A week or so ago, I posted that I have been invited to develop a training session on one subject that is Really Important in the lives of Our Beloved Elders who live in Long Term Care. That subject is “care planning.” My “customer” and I had scheduled a meeting this past week to go over a “first draft” of materials in advance of “the beta test” training session on March 17. “My customer” and I were in the midst of our meeting, when into our space walked… Deborah Drake.

Look. It was Not THE Moment, in a public space, ¬†for me to say….. “It Is In Deborah’s Blogspace That I Have Found The Confidence To Speak The Truth And Facts About the Care For Our Beloved Elders.”

But the “coincidence” was not lost on me.

The confidence and “voice” I have recently been practicing in Deborah’s group of humans and Deborah’s space for reticent bloggers, are beginning to be recognized and valued and shared by people who actually make a difference in the lives of Real Humans who live in long term care.

The training I will share on March 17, with people who work in the world of Long Term Care Advocacy, will begin to make a difference in the lives of our beloved elders and disabled who live in long term care.

As a writer, I wish to make a difference. I wish to leave the world better than I find it. I am grateful for the safe space of this blogspace and the safe space on Tuesdays, in person with Deborah and others, to keep on keepin’ on.

  1. My granny lived to be 102 and that extended journey was a difficult one for my mom and her siblings. This topic, your caring approach is SO needed. Glad to have you in the group and look forward to learning from you!
