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

Finger Food

Good morning . It is raining here and nice and cool. We have had our windows open for three days. That is great for August which is usually the hottest month of the year.
Today for breakfast we had pancakes. Mom loves pancakes with syrup. If I don't cook an egg I put some peanut butter in between two pancakes than put on the syrup . Of course I have to feed mom this cause it can be messy. But I also cut up a pancake and put in front of her for finger food. I always have something for her to pick up with her hands . Crackers, bread , or cereal. I tried peas but she spits them out .
When she is sitting in her easy chair I have a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios in her reach. It is messy sometimes but easy to clean up. On a good day she will eat a bowl full. Not counting what ends up on the floor. I also have a cup with a lid and straw. So I can give her drinks.But I keep that out of her reach . She likes to turn it upside down. And a toy to play with.Something to hold or put in her mouth .Kind of like a baby. But it gives her something to do.Today is birthday day so I got to get busy and make her cake. Last year she would not even take a bite but maybe this year she will . She loves sweets and if I can get her to taste it she will eat it.
