Activity …patterns …change
Thru life …new people met
New experiences …new skills
Disrupts nerve cells ...DAMAGE
Connections … disrupted
Synapses … unable to continue
Cut off …unable to complete
The process ...THINKING!

Reading through a blogger friends site today, I came across this quote at the very bottom left: http://bloggerheadseaturtle.wordpress.com/2013/05/08/rhino-rehabilitation-rumors/#respond Cited from the book about Anne Frank, her diary, I’ve read recently, again, my eyes stared at this quote and my heart drank it in, you see, caring for an Alzheimer’s person, sometimes pulls you into their reality, no matter how hard you try to avoid it. The words and deeds of others helps keep me sane, so thank you to this blogger and the long ago little girl who inspires me:
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.” – Anne Frank
SO I LEAVE YOU TODAY …TO GO OUTSIDE AND DRINK IN GOD’S SUNSHINE! Caring Is Sharing/ sg/ May 8, 2013
Watch and waiting, too hard for me
Dear God make her happy, as can possibly be.
Please bring her calm, in this Alzheimer’s storm
Return all lost thoughts, where they belong.
Don’t let her suffer, bring peace to her heart
And relief to her mind, a do over, a restart!
Why must she be, unmindful of life
Why must she suffer, all of this strife?
I’m just asking, it’s hard to know
Why anyone should suffer so!
Please hold her in your arms real tight
And give her a good night’s sleep tonight!
I pray tomorrow will bring a new day
When Alzheimer’s moments will be…blown away!

A repost from the beginning, so relevant over the past month. My daily prayer.
