The warm apple pie hit the spot. TY. Nice to get to know you better through your blog, my Twitter Friend! I’m a sandwich gen’er too – helping with my elderly mom and aunt with a 13 year old daughter at home.

Visiting from UBP2012. What a blessing to find your site! I’m not caring for grandparents yet but I think about those things, and I’ll probably join the grandparenting generation in the next decade. I am a physical therapist, and so I am very much interested in the information and perspective you share as a caregiver. Following on FB. Bless you!
