New Year, New Changes, New Encouragement for the Sandwich Generation

by Kaye Swain

 

The grandkids are snow happy for snow but it can be dangerous for aging parents in the Sandwich GenerationMerry Day-After-Christmas! I hope your holiday was delightful, full of sweet visits or phone calls! We enjoyed ours as well and now are looking forward to a new year full of God's love, grace, and provision (and as the grandkids would add – plenty of snow for a while too! :) ). 

I know some people are making 2013 sound "woo woo" coz of the 13. But God reminded me that the 13 can also stand for One God, Three people = the Trinity. A lovely way to look at it, don't you think? I thought these would be lovely words of encouragement towards that end for all of us in AND out of the Sandwich eneration on this Word-Filled Wednesday!  

Peace from the Father Son and Holy Spirit - God Almighty - to encourage the Sandwich Generation multigenerational caregivers

New Years is traditionally a time for new habits, exciting changes, and intriguing challenges. That's definitely looking to be true for my Sandwich Generation family and myself, due to various health and other needs.

As a result one change you will be seeing is here at SandwichINK. After almost five years of blogging at SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation every single day, I am going to try switching to primarily two times per week here at SandwichINK, along with one or two monthly posts at SandwichINK Real Estate Info – with information for all of us helping our senior parents with their housing needs. 

Here at SandwichINK, I will continue to share resources, tips, and encouragement for the multigenerational caregiver with a weekly post for eldercare givers and a weekly post for all of us grandparents. This will enable me to keep sharing great resources here with you as well as ease my writing schedule a bit to free me up for the extra grandkid babysitting I've been doing and extra eldercaregiving my senior mom has been needing. And who knows, I might even be able to get started on a book idea I've been toying with for years!

So do keep visiting, sharing your ideas and input, and hanging in there. I know things are keeping you just as busy as well. But together we can keep helping each other on this journey called caregiving!  Have a blessed week! 

Enjoy encouraging Bible verses and pictures each Word-Filled Wednesday at Internet Cafe Devotions
