Have you heard of Hospice? If you haven’t, you’ll want to learn more. Hospice is a national organization with local chapters that helps families care for loved ones in their last weeks and months. When my little friend Kyle passed away this year, Hospice was at his home to help provide care and support for the family in the last weeks before his death. And, as his Mom Christsin says, “They were great!” When the opportunity to go to their auction came up (my friend Wendy from local phenom business, Avenue Bread, led a table), my husband and I jumped.
Hospice is an amazing group. They have been invaluable in our family in the last 5 years.
And you light fires, bad girl… 😉

I did not realize that Hospice was an organization. I thought it was a general term for a service provided the dying.
When my parents were dying, I was real impressed with the hospice nurses caring for them. Just try to give an elderly sick patient a bath in a bed! I don't know what I would have done without them!
I, too, have been grateful when our local hospice helped us when Mom died. I make chemo caps for our cancer center. I will donate soaps made from shea butter also as I know how tender "chemo" skin is.
We've had hospice in our lives 3x's. I would have been lost without them when my mom died. Thanks for supporting them AM!
Hospice *is* a wonderful organization. Kudos to you for supporting them!
…Beeswax, microwave and catastrophe…where have I heard that before?!? 😉
I must ditto the praise for Hospice. Every experience I and friends have had with them has been so positive. They assess what is needed and the family can continue to do the care they prefer to do themselves. A truely sensitive, caring staff that are practical and care for the family and friends as well as the designated patient. I encourage everyone to support the Hospice near you.
I love the Arc de Triumph cake…absolutely stunning! I couldn't bear to eat it though. 🙂
The gal next to me at a wedding I attended set her napkin on fire and then acted like she didn't see it. Weird. Can't wait to read your stories about the fires…LOL!
