B. Lynn Goodwin, California – I was honored that she loved the book

The evening’s guest speaker sat next to me at an Alzheimer’s support group. She asked to look at my book, which is called You Want Me to Do What? Journaling for Caregivers. I showed it to her and she said she had to have it to use with her groups, but she didn’t have any money. She asked if she could send it to me, so I gave her the book and put my PO box number on the back of a business card.

I have no problem with the fact that I did not receive her check. I still might some day, but that is not the point. I was honored that she loved the book and wanted to share it with the caregivers she works with. Wherever she is, I hope this woman, who ministers to caregivers, is spreading the word that journaling helps.
