Coffee shared with our Caregiving family is happiness tasted and time well spent.
Thursday’s are usually held for “Hug A Caregiver‘ day, however, there is something exciting trending on the internet which was started by two of my Caregiving friends, G-J and Kathy who I have met through Denise Brown’s wonderful site, Caregiving.com . G-J was looking for another way to support Kathy, so she shared a photo with a cup of coffee, a cookie and a note of encouragement, Kathy returned the favor and before you know it, our friend Trish created the hashtag #CoffeeWithACaregiver. We’ve been exchanging virtual coffee greetings for the past week or so: Because of the challenging Caregiving week I had had with TLO, I can’t tell you how much I have looked forward to #CoffeeWithACaregiver each day. The daily support from #CoffeeWithACaregiver is very special, and very meaningful.
#CoffeeWithACaregiver is another great example of how Caregivers have this innate ability to understand and support each other even when the Caregiving journey’s are different. No matter what your Caregiving journey might be, finding support and comfort, in any form, is healthy and important to ones own personal health and well-being. I know that I would not have been able to get through all the challenging Caregiving days without my extended Caregiving family I have found through ‘The Purple Jacket’ and Caregiving.com
On Friday, February 14, share the love with fellow family caregivers. Join all of us for a virtual cup of coffee and share the love of care. Simply use the hashtag #CoffeeWithACaregiver and share it across your Social Networks, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest. We’ll start posting at 10:00am, but feel free to post anytime of the day. We will all be sharing across our networks; it is not only going to be quite a bit of fun, you’ll see the love and support Caregivers have for each other right before your very eyes!
