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

Mini Vacation

Good Morning all. It is 5:30 am . I should be back in bed. No nurse or aid coming today but no I am up and at it. Been up since 3. I am going to Eureka Springs Arkansas today for a mini vacation. Be back tomorrow sometime. So wanting to get started.
 Got up to  turn and change mom at 1 but than I could not go back to sleep again. Layed in bed thinking about the day till 3 so gave up trying to go back to sleep.  Turned and changed her again than ate breakfast and took a shower. She is wide awake now.  Don't know if I want to get her up or leave her in bed. She would love a milkshake so I will give her one of those in a min. My sis is coming over at 8 than I am out of here. It is chilly. Around 49 degrees. Debating on what to wear. Will be in 80's here later. Shorts or jeans? Can't make up my mind. Guess I will wear jeans now and change into shorts later maybe. A friend and I are going to the Passion Play . It is a live action play in a big outside open theater  about the last days of Christ. I saw it when I was a teenager but it is bigger and better now. Can't wait. Better go give mom her milkshake. Have a great day.
