Just a 4 more days till the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Longview, Texas. I’m excited, this will be my 5th year involved with the Alzheimer’s Organization. I’ve enjoyed raising monies for research, and walking with others who share my plight.
I miss my Mother every day. Today I gave her walker to another Mother who had a need. I know it sounds corny, but I was teary driving home after dropping it off. She didn’t use it much, said it was for “old” people (she was 89 years old when she passed away in 2015) .
Just finished book #5 (the last poems I wrote during my Mother’s Alzheimer’s storm. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=sheila+wilder+grimes
My prayer is that the monies raised for research will help another child, spouse, friend to have more quality days with their loved ones. So many younger people are being diagnosed every day with this horrible disease.
Thank you again, for reading my heart. I am forever in your debt, because you read my words. Writing enabled me to de-stress during the hard times dealing with Mom’s illness.
My mission is finished. I’m at a loss the direction I need (want) to take from this point on with my writing, but I do know it’s been awesome!
In Jesus love for you all,
Sheila Marie Wilder Grimes
