A journey in time with Alzheimer's

The Gift …Alice

Red yarn hair
Atop her head
Frilly blue dress
Alice! …you said!
Creamy color cloth
From head to toes
A fading …smile
Eyes …and nose
Ribbon ties
A gift you’ve given
To a pretty child …a
Blessing …from heaven.

Mom made the doll, Alice with the blue dress, years ago. When her youngest granddaughter walked into our home to visit,  my heart knew the doll was for her. When asked the doll’s name, Mom didn’t hesitate, she said Alice, with the blue dress. Such a touching moment. Children are blessings, and Mom was blessed with her playing and running and jumping and beautiful smiles.
