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

Circle of Life Hospice

We did not get as much snow and ice as  the weather man said we might get . I think our neighbors to the north got hit the hardest. My aunt lives an hr away and got a foot and my cousin lives 3 hrs away and got 20 inch's on top of what they have had for a month. But ours is pretty. And my son's Razorback flag is blowing in the wind so I had him take a picture for me.
I have to praise Hospice again. The nurse got snowed in so she could not make it to see mom but she called to check on us . She said if I needed anything she would bring it to me. We were not really snowed in. The streets were very icy because of the freezing rain that fell first but my son got out to go pick up his girlfriend. Than the Hospice Chaplin called . He also said if we needed anything he would bring it to us. I have to thank them for worrying about us. It makes a person feel good knowing people care.


  1. We in blog land care, but don't live by you. Glad you have these people checking in on you.

  2. Thanks Carol. I know you all do. I think of you guys everyday too.

  4. Karen, I'm so glad you have Hospice to check in on you all, and to help when they can.
    This disease can sometimes suck the life out of us caregivers..... the help is wonderful.
    Your snow picture is pretty.... and the American flag is even prettier!

  5. Karen I AM so glad you stopped by. My big computer is down and I am using a lap top and does not have my favs on it... I have saved your blog to this now though.. thanks again for stoppin and keep warm

  6. The people of Hospice are so special. Both my parents passed away in Hospice care -- My Mom from Alzheimer's, with 18 months of tender care, and my Dad from congestive heart failure, with fewer than 12 hours in Hospice . . . but they made his last 12 hours comfortable and peaceful and he had a gentle passage.

    I will be forever grateful to them. It is truly a calling, a mission.

    All the best -- Cass
