A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Thank you Jenn  http://thatsajennstory.wordpress.com/  for this nomination, and I do accept it.    I  love reading blogs,  so many wonderful writers on cyberspace.  Time keeps me from reading more, what I have read are interesting, different  perspectives on life, living, and the pursuit of happiness.  Jenn’s blog  always has a new twist, she manages to take  her interests  and with a stroke of her pen (key board),  colors the images and excites the reader.    Sometimes I laugh, or shed a tear, or just sigh, her writings are superb!  Do visit her site, you’ll not be disappointed.

These awards are humbling for me, I have gained more than  I have given.  It’s a whole new world, writing my thoughts down.  My Mother’s Alzheimer’s  is challenging as a caregiver and  heart wrenching  as  a daughter.     It’s steady as you go, taking one day at a time.

Now to get down to my homework ( smile).  Seven random  things  about myself:

l.  I  miss  my nephew Kyle  Joseph Knapp who passed away a few weeks ago.  Kyle was an inspiring   young writer with  a heart of gold.     I miss his smile.  My sad heart wishes I’d known him better.    I told him once that his writings were too deep for me.  I’ve found myself reading Pluvial Gardens, his book of poems , over and over, trying to understand him.

2.  I am persistent, sometimes it gets me in trouble, I get on these missions in my head, and like a bulldog, gotta get it done!

3.  Deep down, I have a fear of flying in airplanes.  I fly because I have to, used to drive home to N.Y., now I’m older and can’t drive alone.  So, it stresses me, but I do it by closing my eyes and clutching the seat while I pray and ask God to stay with the pilot, I’m O.K.!

4.  We  lived in Iceland when our son was a baby, such simple times.  My only mission then was GETTING SOME SLEEP….so much daylight in the summer!

5.  I   enjoy  Star Trek movies…..can’t get enough ….even love reruns….weird!

6.  I love noodles of any sort!  Spaghetti, salads, mac ‘n cheese …PASTA PASTA PASTA!

7.  I am a patriot ….I bleed red, white, and blue!

My nominations for the :  WONDERFUL  TEAM MEMBER READERSHIP AWARD  (I love the logo)   are those who have made me smile, cry, everyday and they READ  on:

Again, thank-you Jenn for  the nomination,  and I  will continue to  READ, READ, READ!      Like always, writing keeps my mind free .    It helps me soar above Alzheimer’s  sadness.  It gives me  time for me, myself, and I.  Selfish, but I love to share.  Thanks to everyone who reads Alzheimer’s Trail.
