Something Inspiring That Really Touched Me

Please Share

Hi –
It’s Mikol here, hope you are doing well.
Today I wanted to share with you something inspiring that really touched me.

We returned recently from San Diego, where we were “support team” for our beautiful daughter, Jessica, who was running her first marathon, a fundraiser for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society.

JERDMarathon

Carolyn and I cheered her on and even got to run alongside her for the last 6.2 miles. It was an exciting experience watching her finish and we are so proud of her! Just seeing her finish was an inspiration, but the most inspirational thing we saw was something that really took us by surprise.

Along the path we saw a triple amputee doing the marathon. He had a prosthetic leg, and two prosthetic arms, plugging along the path. We stopped to thank him for being an inspiration. And he told us, “I’m very blessed” with a smile on his face.

I thought about him for a long time afterwards. I’m sure he was tired, as everyone at that moment was past the 20 mile mark. What struck me the most was his attitude of gratitude. Something we can all work on in dealing with our aging parents. I’m sure it’s what kept him going. And I’m sure, with the right direction, it will keep you going too.

The work of caring for an aging parent makes you blessed! And adopting an attitude of gratitude will make your life and the life of your aging parent’s easier and more enjoyable.

If you are having problems and need help and support, call us or email us and get it taken care of. Our number is (866) 962 – 4464.

Carolyn and I will show you how to calm family conflict, and we will show you the quickest and most effective ways to handle all the legal, medical, and financial challenges you may be facing so you can get back to what is most important.

Just hit reply to email us or call us at (866) 962 – 4464.

Life is short, something we all realize more and more as we age. Every moment we have with our aging parents is a blessing. So let us all try our best to cherish life while it’s still here and love our aging parents every way we can!

All the best,
Dr. Mikol

Testimonials by our readers
"Thank you for the article on the "grey area". It validated what I am currently going through with my Mother. It is so painful for me to go back and forth with her behavior. I just don't know what to do about the estranged sister who has exploited well over $50K of my mother's savings and my Mothers admitted " lack of "will power" to say no to her." Robert ________________________________ "I do want to thank you for the Webinar you offered. It helped me a great deal as I was facing the need to lead our family in finding a safe living situation for our mother. That information and the other information you offered as downloads gave me much needed guidance when I was feeling tremendous anxiety and uncertainty." Betty
