A little vent

When my mother went to be with the Lord April 19, 2001, she had supplemental health insurance through AARP. At the time, I informed AARP of mother's death and cancelled her health insurance, along with her AARP membership.

However, about once a year correspondence from AARP arrives in the mail, addressed to my mother, as it did yesterday. It begins.....


Since your membership ended, AARP added many new and improved member benefits and services.

We would very much like to welcome you back to AARP, so you can enjoy those benefits and services...."

Argh!!!! The first few times I received the letter, I returned it - reminding them of mother's death.

Obviously they just don't get it!

Now I just throw the letters in the trash. It's their money!



A missionary at home

Ann Flory Soden shares her caregiving story "What About Mom?" at Comfort Cafe.

I love what Ann says here:

"In her smile I could see that she now agreed with me: my staying home with her was just as important to the Lord as being a missionary in the Philippines."

Visit Comfort Cafe and read Ann's caregiving "Life Story" here.
