Today was a productive/fun day. First my dog Stone helped me make a batch of Ravenclaw and Slytherin Master Wands, then I helped my Nana get ready for an early Thanksgiving lunch with her mom, sister and brother in law. The food and vibes were good. Would you believe my Great Grandma is 102 years old?! She will be turning 103 this December! She is doing so good, they took her off of hospice!
Barbara loves movies and popcorn 🍿

Day 3 of our hospital stay. Hospitals can be scary, lonely, and BORING. Yesterday I felt so unproductive, but the truth is my usual definition of productivity looked different. Instead of getting chores, tasks, and assignments completed, I was extremely PRODUCTIVE as a MOM. I was present for my child, I was there to speak to the nurses and doctors, and I was there to read a book upon request. So today as I relieved Jazz, I decided to put on a fresh face of makeup, bold lip, and real clothes for another PRODUCTIVE day as a MOM. .

Our thoughts and prayers to all affected by the wildfires! We’re not in immediate danger but our kids are driving us bonkers with no outside time.
It hasn’t even been a week since my broken foot and Jack has been nothing but amazing! He literally tells me to sit down and he will get/do it! 😊 He hasn’t complained about taking the dogs out, getting me towels, bringing me food, and he’s even slept out in the living room with me every night! 😍😍 This break is so much more mentally challenging than I though it would be. Because I “feel fine”, I just can’t do things for myself. I’ve had my share of melt downs so far, but now I’m just listening to my body and when it says it’s time to sit or even stop working I’m doing just that. 😭Thank you babe for being so patient, kind, caring, and trying to cheer me up when I’m sitting on the ground bawling my eyes out. ❤️You da best! 🙌🏼 #thatsmyhusband #caretaker #youdabest #loveyou #ballandchain
I was a caretaker for 6 years. My Grandma had Alzheimer's, terrible disease. Hardest thing i ever did in my life. No regrets 💖💖💖 I Loved my Grandma so much, she was there when I was born and we were very close. When she forgot me and my family, it killed me inside. #AlzheimersAwareness #November #Caretaker
Provide your parents with the independence they deserve 🏡💚
⚠️PURE SOPPY MUSH ALERT⚠️ It's probably the jet lag getting me but I'm embracing it. This man is a bloody gem, one of the most selfless and generous humans and has the most kind and welcoming family and friends. I know we'll be buddies for life, mainly because we have too much shit on each other... @koltaen
I'm only posting this cause I know you'll hate it #youmarideordie #imissyoupam #numberonecanadian #caretaker
As I read my friend Sandy’s post this morning it reminded me of my own struggles with this. .
Our deepest struggles and our healing from them are truly a gift from God to work in our lives to provide healing to others. There is where purposeful, meaningful work truly lies.
I searched high and low for this purpose and it was only revealed to me once I faced the shame, guilt, regrets and rejections I felt from my son’s autism.
I thought if people knew I didn’t have it all together I would look “weak”, didn’t know how to be a good mom or just wasn’t doing the right things for him. Guilt and shame over meltdowns and thinking this all was my fault, regrets over things we missed out on, rejections from the people in our life...
Too often we want to keep these things to ourselves, maybe out of fear of judgement. Shining light in those dark places is the only way true healing takes place and creates a path for us to help others. ❤️
You can’t slap on a band-aid, move on and call it “strength.” I know I tried to do that for so long. True strength lies in wisdom and vulnerability.
This pic is me, walking free with excitement in my soul to empower families to embrace their journeys, see the beauty and miracles that can happen and fall in love with ALL OF IT! 💙

A few months after my late husband passed, I flew to Switzerland with a backpack and my lonesome to hike ten different mountains in the Alps, without guides and without poles. People assumed I wanted to be around others, but the truth was I wanted to be with myself in the quiet company of nature and its friendship at high altitude.
Moments after Matt passed, I heard his undeniable voice and felt his unmistakable presence telling me he was ok. An inner knowing told me the further away I got from the city and its noise, the louder his voice and stronger his presence would become. And there he was in Switzerland. Louder and more clear with every step, summit, and descent.
What I experienced in the mountains of Switzerland was irrefutable confirmation I never lost Matt. The reward of facing my grief was the gift of freedom from the traumatic experience of his cancer and death and the greater gift to be free of the fear of death forever.
Loss is an opportunity for us to gain something else. An open heart and spirit is all you need to investigate and invest in your grief in order to learn from it and ultimately release what no longer serves you. All of nature is a powerful space to be with your open heart and spirit. A nearby national forest or park, the beach, a hike, even a simple walk outdoors can give you an opportunity to reflect on life and loss.
In grief, when you expand yourself and let the universe in with an open heart and spirit you see life for what it is - infinite, everywhere, all of it precious and beautiful and one. And then in that humbled understanding of pure, unified, and universal energy, gratitude and forgiveness will find you. Perspective will find you. And pain is met with love.

Rip it off like a bandaid...one and done! It is good luck that my parents have an old @nordictrack
in their basement or I wouldn’t be running at all during my 24/7 caretaker duty.
I also felt the pull to start testing my @sabresafety
safety alarm and pepper spray - because why not?! I liked hit well the “runners” spray fit in my hand and while the alarm was a bit heavy for my loose shirt, it would probably work well on a fitted top or pack. I thought the velcro on the “duathlete” spray wouldn’t stand up to my arm swing, but it stayed together nicely.
I might be able to talk someone into stopping by for a couple hours later this week so I can take them all for a spin outside — where the wild things are 😉😉

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I hope everyone had a great day! 😀 Today was a Dad and Chelsea day 😊 my dad is now out of the hospital 🙌🏻 which I am so excited about but now that I don’t have the nurses taking care of everything I had to really step up and help my dad. I have to make sure that he is feeling good and not having any reactions! •
I love spending all of this time with him but it is very stressful trying to remember everything! And it’s also hard not having a break and some time to myself. Right now my dad can not be alone he needs someone with the whole time. So it’s been a pretty chill day. We woke up and went out for breakfast and did a little bit of shopping, and than we just relaxed at the hotel and have been watching a lot of HGTV! Haha which I don’t mind! •
I didn’t get my workout in today because my focus was on someone else today. I head home tomorrow so I will pick it up back than. Sometimes there is more important things to focus on. I’m not quitting just taking a little pause for today, and I will push play again tomorrow! 😊 •
