There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
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.
1 John 4: 9-10

More Snow!

We are having another round of snow. I guess we are trying to catch up with our neighbors to the north. I think there is over 20 inch's out there now and it is still snowing. My son loves it . His girlfriend is snowed in with us again. I do believe they planned it. But makes for more fun. Baking , watching movies and just getting to visit . Mom is still doing good on her new meds. We have plenty because the nurse came Monday and ordered all we needed . My brother came to visit Tues for the first time in awhile . He was bugging mom and asking her all kinds of silly questions. I said call her by name so she will know who you are talking to. And he did . She finally said What!!! He is not really nice to her . He just teases her and bugs her . He never gives her any loving. Or talks to her normal. Sometimes Men just need to be slapped. But since he only comes about once a month anymore I did not slap him. Maybe next time.


  1. Wow, that's a lot of snow!!!! My niece lives in El Dorado, Ark, and it was snowing there this morning as we were talking on the phone.

    Chuckle, chuckle about your son and his girlfriend being snowed in together....I'm sure they're thrilled.

    I'm so glad to hear the meds. are working well on your mother.

    Some men just don't know how to handle relationships and sickness.... I suppose this is the only way he knows to interact, but it's not much help to you.

    Stay warm and take more pictures!

  2. That's a lot of snow. I'm glad to be watching ours melt a little bit more each day.
    Sounds like it's a good thing your brother doesn't visit more often.
    Glad to hear your mom is still doing better on her meds.

  3. Wow to the snow. Wow to the brother. I wish he could be of more help to you, even if were just emotional help. I am sure that he brings stress into the house that you don't need. Hugs.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
