In honor of Mend a Broken Heart Month, we want to bring awareness to the countless children who are being abused daily.
February is Mend a Broken Heart Month! Each year, nearly 300,000 children are rescued from abuse and neglect and must enter foster care. Frequently, these children arrive for care empty-handed and broken-hearted. Mend a Broken Heart Month is a yearly observance in support of these children in need. We encourage you to help these children by donating the $25 necessary to get each My Stuff Bag into their hands. Thank you for your support! http://www.mystuffbags.org/donate-funds-now/
IT'S A FACT! President Andrew Jackson's pet parrot had to be removed from his funeral for shouting obscenities at the mourners.
Dear Abby on Photos at Funerals | A Good Goodbye ~ Funeral Planning for Those Who Don't Plan to Die
Dear Abby on taking photos at funerals - You should ask first! http://ow.ly/kC6tu
Dear Abby on Photos at Funerals | A Good Goodbye ~ Funeral Planning for Those Who Don't Plan to Die A recent Dear Abby column dished some good funeral etiquette advice on the question of taking pictures at funerals. DEAR ABBY: What is proper etiquette for someone who takes pictures at a funeral? I am a recent widow who received a package from an out-of-town relative. In it were several envelopes for my family. One of them was for my sister, who lives 40 miles away. I gave my sister a call and told her it looked like it contained a stack of pictures. She said I should go ahead and open it. Inside were photos taken at my husband's funeral -- pictures of the funeral home, inside the church, the casket, and some of me and my daughter sitting at the gravesite. Abby, it was like going to the funeral all over again! The latter were particularly disturbing. To me, it felt like voyeurism. Why would someone take pictures of such a sad event? I hope you print this and tell me and others what your opinion is so they may heed your advice -- particularly my in-laws. -- GRIEVING WIDOW IN INDIANA

On days like Mother’s day, Father's day, Christmas, a birthday or an anniversary it makes it a little bit harder to deal with a loved ones death.

SATURDAY CAREGIVER TIP: Share your physical discomforts with your care recipient and physicians. Speak up if you don't feel well. If you keep it to yourself, a potentially serious problem can get even worse.
Grief is the natural reaction to losing a loved one — grieving is also the road to healing from a loss. The funeral helps facilitate this process. It helps loved ones face the reality of the loss, helps them to say good-bye, and reestablish a support network.
It's a good idea to leave your negativity at the door. Staying positive makes your day and those around you so much better! :)
Resilience or the ability to bounce back from adversity is important to succeed in life. An important part of resilience is having the support of others. Who supports you when the going gets tough?
SUNDAY CAREGIVER TIP: Get outside! As caregivers, we tend to stay near our care recipient a great deal, which means being indoors. Try to find time, maybe while your loved one is sleeping, to get outdoors for a little bit. Sit in a chair, stare at the clouds, feel the sun in your face. It truly reminds you that you are alive and vibrant.
