Gilding the Silver Lining

Dad and Greg July 2017

When you look at this photo, you see two men dressed to hop on a surfboard and ride a wave. My father-in-law is on the right, and my husband is on the left.

I just want to say, being a caregiver to my husband’s parents is an honor and a privilege. It’s also hard, frustrating, and exhausting.

To all caregivers — I salute you. You may ultimately find me asleep in the laundry room. There’s a little bit of room if you need to join me… just no cell phones allowed. You know why.

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!
