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

Quilt Pieces

The only thing my mom and grandma "her mother -in -law" had in common was making quilts. Mom would have me cutting quilt pieces for her when she could keep me from sneaking out to play. Than grandma stayed with us for awhile and she had me cutting quilts pieces the whole time she was here. I complained all the time. Than that Christmas my present from her was the quilt she made from the pieces I had to cut while she was here. Everyone had a big laugh and I really love that quilt.


  1. hi Karen :)

    thanks for visiting me on my blog. It's good finding new bloggers with similar experiences. all the best


  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry to hear of the struggles of you and your mother. What a sad, sad disease. If you have time read Still Alice. It helps understand Alzheimer's from the person suffering from it.

  3. We have some quilts that were made by some of Sues family members close to eighty years ago hanging on our walls. A friend of ours passed away on Super Bowl Sunday five years ago. His ex-wife cut up some of his favorite cloths and used the pieces to make a quilt for their son. Quilts are not just something to keep you warm on a cold night. They are a piece of family history to be treasured.

    God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

  4. Hi Karen, the only thing my Mom and her mother in law had in common was knitting!
    How funny.
    I remember being forced to sit and hold the big skeins of yarn between my two little kid hands while they wound the yarn into usable balls for their knitting -- I didn't like that chore much, my arms would get tired!

    Good memories, thanks.

  5. Thank you for your comment on our blog. I'm not sure if my last comment got through? Just in case, the official website if people want to know more about the CONCERT study on dimebon is:

    But the more people like yourself that spread the word, the faster we can get the trial full and get one step closer to getting it out to those who need it most. It would be great if you could write a post about it - let us know if you do!


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