Drawing upon more than three decades of experience, a whole lot of mistakes (I am the "crash-test dummy of caregivers"), and a goofy sense of humor, we're going to strengthen fellow caregivers ...one weary heart at a time!

Gracie asked if she could record one of our promos.  What do you think?

The podcast will still be available and free, so make sure you follow/subscribe

The Delta Doctrine

One day, while flying to Atlanta on Delta Airlines, (Duh,Everything Leaves Through Atlanta), I discovered that flight attendants state the best advice for caregivers—all day long:

“In the unlikely event of the loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the ceiling. Securely place your mask on first, before helping anyone next to you who may need assistance.”

That small directive, which I call the “Delta Doctrine,” contains applicable wisdom for so many circumstances— but probably none as poignant as for those of us serving as a caregiver for a chronically ill or disabled loved one.

Have you noticed that they don’t tell you how to open the peanuts or pretzels—which are surprisingly difficult?  Nor do they explain how to use the atomic suction device known as a lavatory. I suppose they think we will just figure those things out on our own!  But every flight attendant, pilot, and every government and civilian entity associated with flying will remind us to put our masks on first.

Why?

Because they know it’s counter-intuitive to human beings.  When a loved one is in peril, we simply throw caution to the wind and race in to help.

As anyone who’s moved knows, things can get lost or misplaced in the process. In our recent move to Southwest Montana, my scattered mind led me to drop my debit card in the parking lot of a grocery store in Bozeman. (Granted, I've got all this head ...and so little brain, but I'd like to think that I can normally keep from hurling my debit card to the ground.)

Meet the wonderful individual who found it, tracked me down, and returned it safely.  Her name is Kylie Stier and she is the business manager at Bozeman Lodge. 

You will love meeting her ...and learning more about this wonderful individual! 

Thank you Kylie - you saved me a LOT of headache, and are a breath of fresh air to meet in this world! 

"Live the way you choose - in style and comfort, surrounded by good friends and modern amenities in the beautiful Gallatin Valley. Bozeman Lodge is a warm and friendly community with a full range of amenities and a full schedule of social, educational and recreational opportunities."

Watch Now:

Bran.jpgI've never watched Game of Thrones, so when i saw this trending, my caregiving journey told me it must be about something else. Show producer, John Butler (AKA the Count of Mighty Disco) set me straight ...and then we crossed the road into a story about a chicken with a prosthetic leg. 

Just another day on HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER!

As caregivers, we need to lighten up ...it's just a fact. We often daily see  serious, painful, and heartbreaking things, and we certainly cry enough tears ...but do we laugh? Sadly, many of us don't ...and won't without a bit of help.

I've always loved stand up comics, and one of my favorites is Jeff Allen. From the moment I heard his voice, delivery, and act ...I was hooked!  He's on a new tour right now ...and I highly recommend you catching his show at a venue near you!  

Jeff called the show, shared his story and his philosophy of humor and life! 

As caregivers, we serve ourselves well to not wait for a "accidental" laugh, but to intentionally engage in things that can lighten our hearts. For me, it's stand up comics, funny movies, books, and shows. Along the way, those regular moments of laughter help me better shift the challenges I face so that they don't seem so crushing at times.

This doesn't just apply to me, however. Gracie loves to laugh ...and I love making her laugh. 

How about you?

“How can you laugh through what you all live through!?”

Peter Rosenberger often hears that question when people learn of his 33 year journey as a caregiver for his wife, Gracie, who lives with severe disabilities. (80+ operations including the amputation of both legs).

Yet, both Peter and Gracie draw hope from their deep faith which strengthens their hearts and their sense of humor.

Drawing upon his martial arts studies (Peter has a 2nd degree black-belt in Hapkido), Peter equips audiences to practice self-defense of the heart.

This episode is from May 5 2019.  Opening with show producer, John Butler (AKA the Count of Mighty Disco) Peter takes listeners on journey through humor, compassion, and hope ...and points fellow caregivers to a place of safety.
