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

Thank You Bear Hug Waltz

I received an award today. I have to thank Donna at
for this award. She gives me great advice and helps me through hard times with her wonderful poems, words of wisdom, friendship and info. on all things important.We have a lot in common when it comes to our care giving journey. With lots of prayers I do believe we might make it.
The award is the HAPPY 101 and I have to tell you 10 things that make me happy or are my favorite things. Well of course this is 1 of them Blogging. These are in no order so I will just write them as I think them up.
Than there is my Son he has to be number 1 but don't tell him he is in the number 2 spot.When he comes home I just smile from ear to ear. I love the sound of his car door slamming shut.
I guess number 3 would be mom on a good day. If she says something that makes sense I call everyone and tell them before I forget. That makes me happy.
4Th will be eating out . I love to eat out but these days it is take-out a lot. So number 5 will be take-out. I really don't like to cook so take-out makes be very happy.
6 will be baking I love to bake . Don't know why I hate to cook but love to bake. weird right? Eating raw cookie dough makes me happy.
When I have money to go shopping after paying bills makes me happy and just the fact that I get out of the house makes it even better so that is 7 and 8.
I will say getting some lovin from my furry friends sure does make a sad moment into a happy one so Pets are 9.
10 is a going to be getting my awards. I have such good blogging friends. And the fact that they think I deserve awards is beyond me . Thank you all.

Now I am surpose to past this on and I would like to pass this award to some wonderful blogger friends.There are so many I wish I could list them all.
Thanks for coming to visit and sticking around. You all help when I need advice or just someone to listen to me. and you let me into your lives by letting me read your wonderful blogs. You make a long lonely day into a little time in another place. Sometimes you have bad days and sometimes you have good days but sharing your days with me helps me make it through my day . Thank you all for your sweet words. And I pray only good days ahead for all of us and our love ones.

I know some of you don't like to do awards so don't worry about following the directions.I can't remember all the ones who told me that they did not like it. Sorry. But just wanted you to know I was thinking about you.
