Prolific author Harriet Hodgson introduces us to the second volume in the Family Caregivers series: Affirmations for Family Caregivers:
Harriet Hodgson has cared for three generations of family members—her mother, husband, and twin grandchildren. The affirmations in this book come from Harriet’s eighteen years of caregiving experience, with more years to come. In 2013 her husband’s aorta dissected and he had three emergency operations. Surgeons managed to save her husband’s life, but he suffered a spinal stroke during the last operation, and his legs are paralyzed. Hodgson is his caregiver and, when she needed a boost, she started writing affirmations. Once she started, Hodgson couldn't stop writing them, and a few dozen grew into the hundreds in this collection. “Affirmations are a form of self-care,” Hodgson explains. “Reading an affirmation in the morning can set the tone for your caregiving day.”
Harriet knows being a caregiver is hard work. She has done it for a long time and has brought forth a marvelous book to assist those who lovingly care for others.
This book is not just a breath of fresh air for someone toiling day in and day out for a loved one, it is genius! It provides a moment of respite and encouragement for those showing love every waking minute.
These affirmations directly acknowledge the difficulties that can beset the caregiver, supports overcoming them and respects the caregiver as well as the receiver of care.
Affirmations for Family Caregivers gets 5 STARS! I love this book!
