Caregiver’s tale: “Memory and Acceptance, Lessons learned from my mother”

Coming soon, more info about my new chapter in the new Voices of the 21st Century: Caring Conscious Women Who Make a Difference (02/02/2022)

Excerpt: When I was young, my mother lent me the book On Death and Dying by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. She then asked me to make a drawing of the Serenity Prayer. It gave her comfort. She lost her mother at age nineteen, missing her guidance through the milestones of marriage, motherhood, work, and dealing with the deaths of those close to her. She has practiced the guiding principles of Kübler-Ross and Niebuhr during all the stages of her life. These practices have helped me to understand her journey in her declining years and learn from it.
