    I must admit that I was curious initially how military tactics applied to our roles as caregivers, but after reading your blog, I see that they are quite appropriate.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Love & Light,

    Thanks, Rose. I thought it was remarkable how the ideas fit so well - just some good lessons for us all, I think. I'm going to use this in my advocacy training too, because the principles are valid there as well. Hope you guys have a great day!!!!

    Great points. I am not a caregiver but I know people who are who relate to this.
