Heart to Heart Blog Candy

I wanted to share this with you. Carolyn King has posted some amazing Blog Candy. One lucky person will receive over $1000 in stamping goodies! Please visit her blog for all the details. She is raising money for Alzheimers, and requesting cards to be sent to care givers. I am going to send my Take Time to Smell the Flowers card.
Before my mother passed away, she was bed ridden and we had to hire round the clock care for her. She wanted to be home. Without the help of the aids who assisted my mother we couldn't have cared for her the way she deserved to be cared for. My mother did not have Alzheimers, but she lost her speech, and mobility due to a stroke. Her nurses were a blessing to our family!
So please, if you have the time take a moment and make a card. Send it to someone you know, and if you don't know anyone to send it to, send it to the address listed below. I'm sending my card to my mother's primary care giver, Marilyn.
Here's a brief review copied from Carolyn's blog.
" In celebration of World Alzheimer’s Day, we are reaching out to some amazing people who deserve to be thanked. ….the caregivers. Caring for an Alzheimer’s patient is HARD work and an often thankless job. There are so many people who help and so—I am asking you to make a card for a caretaker of a person affected with Alzheimer’s. Yes, you can send it to someone you know. If you do not know anyone to send a card to you can send it to the address below (this is the home my grandmother lived in for the last few years of her life. The nurses, aids and support staff there were tremendous. It is such a difficult job and I would love to see them showered with cards!)"


To the Staff at the Artman Home

Thanks!
