Happy Mom's Day...


My mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune. ~Graycie Harmon

My Mom has been diagonosed with dementia/a lil bit of Alhzheimers going on too. Her mind is like a five year old child. But she's happy! She laughs, she smiles, she giggles, and she sings and dances! That makes me smile and sing and dance. My grown up Mom has more or less disappeared and now she's my child. I have no regrets though, because whatever I needed to say to Mom had been said hundreds of times to her when her other mind was still here. She knows she was loved by her children and she knows she is now loved by this lady who visits her every day bringing chocolate and laughter.

Peace

That was beautiful and I love that you visit her everyday. As if we needed any more proof of how special you are, that just goes to show it.

Odat,

Your lovely post gives me fear but also hope. You know why.

I will try hard to follow your glorious example when the time comes, and remember that chocolate helps everything.
