      Thanks for stopping by Kaye.I think we met through another hop sometime because I recognized your picture from my Google+. Yes, I come across more caregivers all the time. I went and checked out your blog today too. Great advice about breaking in baseball gloves. I am a baseball fan and am glad the season has started up. Thanks for commenting and I have added your blog to my feed.

  2. Visiting from UPB2012! It’s amazing how many fellow caregivers we meet along the way — God bless you as you care for your mother and your family. If you have time, stop by my blog,, and see what I’m up to!

    I found your blog through UBP12. It is so nice to meet you. I want to say that I really admire what you are doing for your mother. My mom took care of my grandmother for ten years. I was with her during the very last days and it was such a blessing. It was not easy, but it was special. We have so many good memories of that time. I pray that God blesses you with strength and lots of support!

      Thanks Tereasa. It is a blessing taking care of mom as she is usually in great spirits though sometimes she is confused and gets frustrated. I consider it a privilege and like your situation, I have some great memories of this time.

  6. It is great to meet you! I’m a party goer too!

    God bless you for caring for your mother. I know what it is like to be a caregiver. I am watching both of my parents die. I am responsible for them and have become the parent. It is very difficult. I understand.

    I pray you will continue to have supernatural grace and strength.

    In Him,

    • Janice Hidey says:

      Yes, Beth, caregiving can’t be difficult though I am thankful that most of the time mom is in great spirits. Her frustration comes out when she doesn’t understand and that can be hard. God is faithful though and the rest of the family is very supportive for which I am thankful.

    Visiting from UBP12 – blessed to read your post, and to read of your care for your mother with alzheimers – such a ministry, and a blessing to her, I am sure. May God give you the daily strength you need as you care for her.

    I’m so glad I found your blog! you know when you’re blog hopping for UBP you find many blogs that you don’t exactly relate to. But then, you find some you do and it’s very exciting! I am a mother to three boys, all under four and I really really enjoy learning from other women (what the heck is omnibus?! It sounds like exotic transport :)). You seem to have a lot to offer and we share a common faith. Very nice to meet you!

  26. Stopping by from the UBP12! We took care of my husband’s grandmother for 10 years, she died in our home just before my 3rd son was born. What a wonderful (and difficult) ministry you have to your mother. I will be praying for you.

    Stopping by from UBP and wanted to thank you for visiting my blog! I love your writing and will bookmark so I can come back! I read your posts about family memories and cancer. I lost my mom to cancer almost five years ago, when life became forever different. Praising God in/for the storm is sometimes a real challenge! Anyway, I am happy to meet you!
