I have an AMAZING opportunity for you.
If I sound like a crazy sales lady on an infomercial, good.
That's what I'm going for.
Because this opportunity is that good.
Do you know my heart?
My heart is for you.
You, who gets up four hours before you leave for work, because you take care of your husband or wife. You, who never get alone time, so you cherish the time in the shower or the car, because that's all you have to yourself.
You, the caregiver.
An awesome person who totally gets this, has anonymously offered to give one of you caregivers a beautiful gift. Some time away. Some time to yourself. Four nights in a hotel up to $100/night including fees/charges. You can decide how to use this. All at once for a four day stay, or one night a quarter.
We want you to go to the hotel. Or send your loved one there, so that you can enjoy some alone time at home. You're responsible for arranging the care for your disabled loved one. But, you've got that, right? Talk to your loved one. You can figure something out together.
Because, my dear friend, you need this.
You need this.
Your marriage needs this.
Your partner needs this.
Your life needs this.
Because this life we lead? This crazy life of juggling marriage and a disability, it's insanely hard.
And it's not going anywhere.
So, it's always hard.
You know what else?
A lot of marriages - they don't make it.
The numbers are heartbreaking.
People who dearly love each other, are breaking up all the time, because the chronic stress of this life we lead is just too much.
On the body.
On the mind.
On the soul.
On the checkbook.
So, do this for me, will you?
Do this for yourself.
For your marriage.
For your future.
Click here to fill out a little application.
Send it to me (my email address is on the application) by December 23rd.
I am working with the generous person who came up with this idea and who is sponsoring it to pick the winner. There is no magic formula. Just tell us about yourself.
We hope this is just the beginning of a change for the better.
That this will help you to learn to say yes to help, to take a breath, and a nice hot bath, and charge your battery.
We'll announce a winner the week of Christmas.
