To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
WE LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US

Brain Fart

Brain Fart is a term I learned from my son's girlfriend's mom. "I really like her and her daughter". Anyway she used this phase when she forgot what she was telling me once. Well it felt right to me this morning because my brain is fried or something today. I can't talk or get anything done right. Maybe I will go back to bed and start over later. While I was feeding mom every time I wanted her to take a bite I would say here mom take a drink and every time I wanted her to take a drink I would say open wide and take a bite. If she is not confused enough I must of really confused her this morning. T.G.I.F.

  2. Hi Karen,
    Thank you for your recent visits to my blog. I have been doing a little bit of reading here on your blog. First I am sending you a "virtual hug" as I kinda know how hard your job is. I say kinda because I am the primary person responsible for my mom's care, but since she resides in an assisted living facility I'm not the one responsible for bathing, diaper changing, etc. It takes a very special person (like you) to be willing and able to do that. You are a good daughter and what you are doing for your mom is a kind and loving thing.
    I can also tell that your blog is a wealth of information for alzheimer's caregivers. I know that I will be back to visit you often.
