Every week during my blogiversary, I love to give a shout out of gratitude to someone who has made a difference in my caregiving life.
This week, I want to shower my friend, Leslie, with thanks and love, because she has done so much for me!
I met Leslie while I was getting my MPA. We have been friends a long time. Her friendship is already a wonderful gift, but she has given me so much more!
First, she responded to my cries for help last year when I was begging people to come hang out with Grandma so I could be with Calvin, who was on hospice. That’s when I started calling her Lovely Leslie – so Grandma could remember her name.
THEN, when the time came to get more help for Grandma, she gave us Mimi, who gave us Bridget! These two ladies are so wonderful. My grandma loves them and they are so, so sweet. They are the best gifts.
Not only that, she always helps me let my dogs out when I go out of town (and if you own pets, you know how much of a struggle that can be).
So, to Lovely Leslie, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for being a friend!
