It’s been almost 3 years since my Mom passed away. I miss her every day. My tears come without warning. Small words or actions or situations can trigger my memories. I know many of you have similar emotions. I’m now breathing deeper and relaxing my “mind’s eye” as Mom used to say. I’m committed more than ever to obliviate this dreadful disease. I’m even on a committee for the Alzheimer’s organization this year helping where I can, learning as I go, so to speak. I hereby thank the committee here in Northeast Texas chapter out of Dallas, TX for their patience and support. So many with a commitment to making a difference in others lives. Alzheimer’s is an awful disease and research is heavy on its heels to eradicate it. The first survivor is out there, it could be me or you or one of our kids/grandkids/a neighbor/a friend. Whoever that person is, will receive the blessing of a full life without the torments of a confused mind due to Alzheimer’s. Please take time in the next few months to learn more about Alzheimer’s. Go to alz.org and find gobs of info and if you want to become part of something to help others, (and who knows, you may be helping to find someone in your own family who is the first survivor!) come walk with me by simply donating a few bucks to my walk page.
