Living in the world of Alzheimer’s isn’t a bed of roses and it so easy to get sucked into the vortex of what isn’t going right in the moment. Today, I choose to not let the negatives outweigh the positives in my day. How about you?
We’ve gone through a stretch….. I know it’s short in the scheme of things, but it does seem lengthy at times. I never cease to be amazed at her resilience – despite the confusion that is such a big part of her life at this point. Hat wearing is now a part of our adventuring outdoors. She’s “picked” most of the hair off the crown of her head — we know it’s a behavior that won’t change. She’s been doing it for years, she’s just so much more persistent and feels frustrated when her hands are forced to do something else. Oh well, we’ll enjoy the smiles, do a comb over for as long as we can and relish in the moments that we have – each and every one of them…. seeking the joy in today!
LOVE YOU MOM!
