Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers - #Book #Review & #Rafflecopter #Giveaway

My parents and my grandparents are four of the most important people in my life.  I would do anything for them and everyone in my family, including taking care of them when they are no longer to care for themselves.  Millions of people live with and care for their aging family members and in fact it's become much more common in the past few years.  If you care for a family member, of any age, you're going to love this month's Chicken Soup for the Soul book!


Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers
According to their website, "Do you have a family member who requires constant care?  You are not alone.  This collection offers support and encouragement in it's 101 stories for family caregivers of all ages including the 'sandwich' generation caring for a family member while raising their children.  With stories by those on the receiving end of the care too.  These stories of love, sacrifice, and lessons will inspire and uplift family members making sacrifices to make sure their loved ones are well cared for, whether in their home or somewhere else."
These stories are so touching, each Chicken Soup for the Soul book is full of emotional stories that will make you laugh and cry.  
My Review
I don't personally care for a family member but know people that do and I've watched the sacrifices they've made, all to ensure their loved one is cared for.  I know if I were in the same boat, I would sacrifice to be able to care for loved ones.  
The stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers really touched my heart and I realize now just how much work goes into caring for someone, especially when you're raising children! I really loved the fact that I was able to read stories from both sides - caregiver and receiver.  I love to read about family and bonding and I really felt that this was a great book.  I would very highly recommend it to anyone that is caring for a family member!
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - As usual Chicken Soup for the Soul delivers a wonderful read that touched almost every emotion.
