My senior mom and I stopped to pick up the mail last week and were delighted to find a HUGE box waiting for me there. “What could it be,” we wondered. Then I spotted the return address – Denise Brown – Caregiving.com. I still wasn’t sure what it was, but knowing Denise, I knew it would probably be a sweet treasure trove of treats. I suspected it was from her “We Break for Summer!” fun I had joined in on last week, and I was right. She is such a blessing in the lives of so many, including me, and this is just one of the sweet reasons why. Follow me to see what encouragers she had packed up for me, that will be a blessing to my Sandwich Generation family!
Don’t you love this great tote bag! And my grandgirls will love the cute hair ribbons.
CHOCOLATE! How DID she know that this Sandwich Generation granny nanny is a definite chocoholic! And isn’t the table decoration pretty. 🙂
My senior mom and my granddaughter both loved these plastic containers – my senior mom could use two for gardening and my granddaughter figured she could store some of those cute little hair bows and ribbons in one.
Awww, I love this notepad to hang on the fridge. Great for leaving notes.
Swedish Fish – A popular AND red item with the young and old!
Hmmmmm, graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows – do I hear s’mores, anyone? 🙂 And don’t you love the cute red tableware perfect for a picnic any time of the year!
And would you believe, there was even more in there. Thank you, Denise, for such a sweet treat for this Sandwich Generation caregiver. It was a real lift to my spirits, as well as my senior mom’s.
That’s a big reason I love to share blog party posts with y’all. Even without prizes, they can be a real “spirit-lifter” to those of us who are staying so busy caring for elderly parents and raising our kids or babysitting our grandchildren – and we don’t have to clean, dress up, or leave our homes. With autumn on its way – there should be plenty of blog parties coming up – from fall harvest fun to Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years….. Gotta love it. 🙂 Enjoy!
That looked like a wonderful surprise for you all. Some very practical and whimsical things in there too. Have a great week.
Yummy smore’s ingredients are great together or as stand alone treats! What a great bunch of surprises.
How fun! What an encouragement! I love going to the mailbox and finding treasures instead of bills!
Very definitely, Donnie. 🙂 And I’m putting them to good use already, as I head out for babysitting grandchildren with my new tote bag loaded to the gills with grandkid supplies. 🙂
They are, indeed, delish and the grandkids love them. But I can’t get past the straight chocolate. Yummmm 🙂 🙂 🙂
How fun to get a surprise in the mail! Such neat items too. The Swedish Fish sounds interesting. Those caught my eye because I am 1/2 Swedish!
Isn’t it grand, Ocean Soul. And often so rare. 🙂 Another great reason for the Sandwich Generation to enjoy these fun little blog party posts. 🙂
How cool, Linnea. I had never heard of them before but they also caught the eye of my granddaughter – tho in her case it was because they are yummy candy 🙂 🙂 🙂
