Help for caregiver of mother with Alzheimer's.

Lord, please help me to stay true and focused on my husband and child. Help me to be detached from my sisterís lies and negative attitudes (she tops her Christmas tree with a skull). Help me to be detached from my brotherís denial of our motherís health and welfare issues and his excuses for everything. Help me to give up my frustration and resentment at my siblings' inability to do anything constructive on our mother's behalf. Help me do whatís best and necessary to keep my mother as independent as possible for as long as possible. Help me to do what's best and necessary for her health and welfare and give the rest up to you. According to Your Will and In Jesus Name, Amen.

Dear Lord,

Please let by brother and sister come to the meeting I invited them to so we can discuss caring for our Mother. Let them at last respond to my calls for help on her behalf.

If again they ignore her situation, please grant me the serenity to accept it and let go of trying to get them involved.

I ask that all of this happen according to Your Will.

Thank you, God, for Your Love and Light in my life, marriage, and family of choice.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for the lessons I have leared about accepting Your Divine Will and accepting the demonstrated fact of family's lack of effort to help our Mother.

Thank You for letting me be here to care for Mom.

Thank You for the skills I learned while working which have enabled me to manage her health care, home maintenance and finances without going crazy.

Thank You for the blessed people in my life that are supporting my efforts: my neighbor Cori, members of my caregiver support group (who are going through their own caregiving crises), and Stefanie - the counselor/case worker at the Alzheimer's Association.

Thank You for my husband, who gives me strength, courage, and often a more objective outlook than I could manage on my own.

Thank You for my daughter (9 - my greatest blessing and primary responsibility), who shows me the joy of living and enjoying the moment.

Thank You for the serenity I am gaining by letting go of other people's issues and the continued patience, guidance, and love from those who You have so generously put in my path.

Thank You for my life.

In Jesus' name,

Dear Lord,
Here we go again. My niece had requested me to be a friend on facebook, and I accepted, hoping she was trying to reach out and begin to heal our family. My first posting about an issue regarding caring for my mother was a launching pad for a personal attack accusing me of all sorts of things. I know defending myself is my human response, but I fell into self-defense.

I suggested family counseling & even to pay for it when she said she couldn't afford it. Now I'm waiting to hear back from her.

Please take the burden of her abuse from my heart and release her to your hands. Please open her heart and heal her anger.

If it is your will, please bring our family together so we can care for Mom as a team and she can see her family all together.
