"Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with the plan," Tom Landry.

How true. Dwane and I talked on the drive home from Mayo Clinic when he first got his diagnosis how we wanted to do this. The goal is for him to stay at home if possible and for us to continue to enjoy life and each other. Even then it was apparent that while the goal was important, even more important was how we were going to do this. And that lies mainly with us, the caregivers. Peace, respect, dignity, calm, fun, beauty, spirituality are all of utmost importance to me. How I will achieve our goal is by implementing the practices of respect, having fun, honoring the moment, setting up structures that support ease, and drawing the best from both of us each day.
