Illustrated by Erwin Printup A Native American Good Morning Message For as long as anyone can remember, Mohawk parents have taught their children to start each day by giving thanks to Mother Earth. The Good Morning address, also known as the Thanksgiving address, is based on the belief that the natural world is a precious and rare gift, and as such the whole universe should be addressed as one great family.
A caregiving day keeps you running. A caregiving day also keeps you feeling. In our book of poems, 15 family caregivers write what about what they experience in their moments. Our poets care for parents, spouses and children. A few share a viewpoint from a place of life after caregiving has ended. We all want to make the most of the moments we have in each day. A Caregiving Day is also a way for us to help. We'll use the proceeds from our book sales to fund our CareGifters program operated through The Center for Family Caregivers, our non-profit organization. As often as we can, we send $500 to help a family caregiver in need. Because, when you ask for help, we want to be there for you. We're here to make your caregiving and after caregiving days easier.
Each year, Mrs. Cottontail baked Thanksgiving pies for her friends and neighbors. A new family of rabbits moved into the village, and one of the children took one of Mrs. Cottontail's carrot pies. Seeing how poor the new family was, Mrs. Cottontail and her friends forgave them. On Thanksgiving Day, all the rabbits in the village carried gifts to the new family. Mrs. Cottontail baked them a pie, and they all sat down to Thanksgiving dinner.
After marrying the undead-man of her dreams, Trinity starts to settle into her new life. However, a sudden and unfamiliar condition begins to make her fear for the worst. Will she find out what's wrong with her before it's too late or not?
Domestic and caregiving work has been at the core of human existence throughout history. Poorly paid or even unpaid, this work has been assigned to women in most societes and occasionally to men often as enslaved, indentures, "adopted" workers. While some use domestic service as training for their own future independent households, others are confined to it for life and try to avoid damage to their identities (Part One). Employment conditions are even worse in colonizer-colonized dichotomies, in which the subalternized have to run the households of administrators who believe they are running an empire (Part Two). Societies and states set the discriminatory rules, those employed develop strategies of resistance or self-protection (Part Three). A team of international scholars addresses these issues globally with a deep historical background. Contributors are: Ally Shireen, Eileen Boris, Dana Cooper, Jennifer Fish, David R.
