A journey in time with Alzheimer's

The Liebster Award is one of many awards available to encourage new bloggers, and to help us discover new blogs to enjoy.  It’s a great way to link hearts with other bloggers!

Many thanks to :   Elizabeth Yalian           http://hiseyeisonthissparrow.com/2013/04/20/linking-hearts-through-award-nominations/#more-2523       for nominating me.  I am  honored.  This is my 3rd award from another blogger, my 2nd Liebster.   Coming from one who puts her heart into her writings makes this award very special for me.    Do visit her blog and enjoy.  She’s awesome.

My blogging days started in September of 2012.  My muse, if you will, is my Mother.  Mom has Alzheimer’s.  I quit work early to be around her and ultimately brought her to Texas, to our home.  Life has never been the same.  Every day is a challenge.   I always longed to write SOMETHING  ever since my teenage years.  Life took me by the hand and the whirlwind  took me in the opposite direction.   Since having Mom around, I’ve had  time to see and think, two tools  needed before putting words on paper (or laptop).  I just watched her and one day started writing stuff.  AWESOME.  I’m in … hook, line, and sinker!  My poems are cathartic for me.   I love sharing my writings, and reading  the work s of others!
