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

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Christmas and New Year. We are staying home and might get a few snow flurries. I know many of my blogger friends are getting hit hard with snow. Be safe and send some our way.
Mom is in bed and my sister is watching TV. My son is out with is girlfriend. All is good. See you all next year.


  1. I hope you all have a lovely christmas too.
    I was thinking of you the other day
    A friend of mine who has his elderly Aunt living with him told me the other day they had an impromptu gathering at their house after church.
    While they were all sitting in the living room after coffee, laughing, his Aunt who seemed to not be noticing much said out loud.
    This is the Best Christmas Ever.
    I thought it was so sweet.
    Even though she wasn't sure of the day she knew she was having a nice time :)

  2. Have a great Christmas, Karen.
