Caring For Someone You Love

 With Kindness, Love and Respect

 Suzanne Elise Abels, M.S.

 

 

My nonfiction, self-help book, Caring for Someone You Love, deals with helping my father during the last year of his life. Healthy and active all his life, Dad suddenly took a fall at age 80 that resulted in a downward spiral that rendered this fiercely independent man suddenly dependent.

Caring for Someone You Love, is the story of how this affected both of us.  It is a story of love and adjustment and lessons learned, a personal story with broad implications at a time when our older population is larger than ever before in history.  With more than 40 million Americans 65 and older, countless sons and daughters will one day find themselves in my position. My father's end of life was an inspiration to me. It is my hope this book will be an inspiration to others.

 

You would know the secret of death. But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life? The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light. If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life. For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

 In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond; And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring. Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity. Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour. Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king? Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?

 For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun? And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

 Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

 

-- Kahlil Gibran

Kindness of a Budget

A guide to uplifting and inspiring others through daily acts of kindness.

You may be wondering why I wrote this book. Truth be told, I am no different than you – I face good and bad days, successes and failures. If nothing else, my 50 years on this earth have taught me the value of kindness. This book chronicles my experience spreading kindness, love and a dose of magic along life’s many roads, on a modest budget. It is my heartfelt belief that these vignettes can inspire everyday selflessness and a contagion of small acts of kindness
