Hello Kayla!  Great last name BTW.  : )  It is a fairly unusual name so it is kind of neat to meet another Cushing.   I was born in NE - don't have family in CA.  It has been a VERY long time since I was in the 8th grade!  HA!  Do you like 8th grade?   I imagine it is very different from when I was in 8th grade.

Bringing Hangouts To Those Who Need It Most - The Elderly, The Sick and The Ones We Love Most

Please Read, Please Reshare

Margie, and I have been talking about this for almost a year now. She wants to put together a network of Google+ users that will give of their time to help the people that need it most to reconnect with the outside world.

Her mother died a slow death due to Parkinson's. She cared for her to the end herself. My mother became unable to care for herself after a stroke. I cared for her for over 3 years, I know what it takes.

But if our loved ones in these last years of their life could just TALK to another human being from their own frame of reference, you know, from their generation, it would SO change their quality of life.

Or be able to see Christmas morning, birthdays, actually see the joy on the face of grandchildren opening presents. Or presents they sent making smiles.

SO, I have no idea how to do this, BUT I KNOW +Margie D Casados sees this as her chance to use our social media skills to help others.

I am going to kick this off with the hashtag #hangoutcaregivers

What Brought This On?

A man on my email newsletter list emailed me asking for a link to the recording of my Google Analytics webinars. He cares full time for a man that has had a stroke and is now blind. It reminded me of my Mom and how she went from an independent strong woman of 63, to someone who had to depend on me. (in ways i can't describe)

So, as I am about to see 26,000 G+ followers I want to help Margie realize her dream of what she could not do for her mother and desperately wants to do for others to honor her Mother.

My commitment is to share everything Margie directs me too, and since I love Margie very much, and in memory of my own mother, I encourage you to hashtag all your posts with #hangoutcaregivers and figure out how to bring the outside world that we take for granted to those that deserve it most.

Please connect with +Margie D Casados and let those of us fortunate to have large followings on G+ spread the word and support your efforts.

- Chris

I hear in color.

Many of you know my story. This one is for my new friends here.

One fine day, just this last summer I went to get up off the couch after going through some homework with my young daughter.

I nearly fell over as my equilibrium was messed up.

In that moment I lost most of my hearing.

Not wanting to scare my kid, I composed myself and went to the doctor. We assumed that it had something to do with my inner ear.

This was the same week that +Kelley Bard handing me an invite to Google+. Day one here, as I like to call it.

Someone posted a picture here that really moved me, and being as I could not hear anyone, I went to work and grabbed my camera and headed down to the cliffs not far from my house.

I took this picture, went home and pulled it off my camera. I knew right then in there that I didn't lose something.

I gained something.

Months of testing yielded nothing so one day I just got some hearing aides. Of course I went right back down to those cliffs to make sure I still saw things in this new light.

Today I can hear you. Today I hear in colors.

This is the daughter of a friend of mine who lives near Oklahoma City, OK. Her name is Kayla Annette McCuan. She has been missing since 3:30pm Friday, April 27th. Please repost this picture and help us bring her home safely. If you have seen her please notify the authorities immediately. Her family loves her very much. Thanks for your help.

Perfect! Love the warmth of the image. It calls to mind the joy it brings to be securely wrapped up in the arms of a loved one. : )
Thank you +Barry Blanchard for sharing!
 
I guess I better jump in on the fun as well.

Seems a certain someone thought that a hashtag of #cutenessoverload would cheer this guy up.

Well guess what? It did.

Thank you +Mike Spinak and all. My stream runneth over with cute.

Story
Introduction

Nature Lover

I love organic gardening, cooking, traveling, making pots, biking, hiking, being outside in nature, and hanging out with my friends and family. 

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
