Butterfly Habitat
Hello again,

It's been great reconnecting with some of you on Facebook but it's nice to be back in butterfly habitat :-)   Sorry that I've been gone for so long.  It's been "annus horriblis" times two since I was last here.   You can catch up on all of the details by visiting my blog Pam's Coffee Conversation
You can also catch up with me at the page for PamelaKemp.com .   Going forward I will do my best to pop into Care ever few days and add fresh content every week or so.  I look forward to chatting with you again and I hope that you enjoy the page  -- Pamela Lyn

I have learned:

"SUCCESS is many things to many people, but if you have the courage to be true to yourself, to live up to your potential, to be fair with others, and always look for the good in any situation... Then you will have been the best you can be, andthere's no greater success than that."

-- Linda Lee  Elrod



*****



"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963
Martin and Robert


"Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change. " --
Robert F. Kennedy, 1966 speech



******




" If a man be gracious to strangers, it shows that he is a citizen of the world, and his heart is no island, cut off from other islands, but a continent that joins them." -- Francis Bacon


Einstein


" I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. "
-- Albert Einstein



" Too many of us look upon Americans as dollar chasers. This is a cruel libel, even if it is reiterated thoughtlessly by
the Americans themselves." -- Albert Einstein




"All I would tell people is to hold onto what was individual
about themselves, not to allow their ambition for success to
cause them to try to imitate the success of others.  You've
got to find it on your own terms." --  Harrison Ford



Ghandi
"The function of a civil resister is to provoke response. And
we will continue to provoke until they respond. They are not in control. We are."

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end,they always fall--think of it, ALWAYS."
-- Mahatma Gandh

Birthday Nov 01  
Languages English, French  
About Me Since 2006 I have been the primary family caregiver for an elderly parent who suffers from the respiratory conditions of Asthma & COPD as well as a neurological condition known as NPH (Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus). As an offshoot of my role as a family caregiver I blog about my experiences and use various social platforms to advocate on behalf of caregivers and other individuals with similar health conditions. I am currently using social media to raise awareness of issues facing family caregivers as well as persons with neurological or respiratory related illnesses. I am currently working on a draft of a proposal to create a non-profit which will address this issue. Also, in the near future I hope to complete a book which chronicles my mother's health issues and my struggles as her caregiver.
