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

Hardwood Floors!!!

Over the weekend I pulled up my mom's old  green shag  carpet. I knew there were hardwood floors underneath but did not know the shape they were in. To my delight they looked great. I think so anyway. For years I have been wanting to rip the carpet up but mom said no and none of the man in the family wanted to help. Finally I just did it . The easy part was pulling up the carpet the hard part was pulling out the nails and staples. Took me two days to do that. Less than 30 mins to pull the carpet. But worth it.
Thanks all who have donated I have $80 already. That is great. Keep it coming. Thanks again. The Alzhiemer's walk is not till Sept. but we are starting early this year trying to reach our Team Goal of $1000. My starting goal is $100. With the help from our wonderful family and friends last year we raised over $400 . Thank you all again. If you can't donate find a walk near you. It is fun and lots of stuff to do. Food, Door Prizes. Music and more. Can't beat that.


  1. I was just about to email you.
    The doctor told my mom that she had a mild start of Alzheimer's and put her on Exelon. Stays this will probably keep it from progressing! Any thoughts?

    How nice to have the hard wood floors in good shape. So much nicer than carpeting.

  2. You are right Karen, the floor looks great!! Happy Easter.

  3. It was important to have rugs in case you mom fell.

    Now for you those hardwood floors look wonderful.

    Have a wonderful Easter.


  4. Love wooden floors and yours look good. glad to read a post from you too. Hope you are all back to normal and not grieving too much.xo


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