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

Mom and Dad Happy Times.

Another Wedding

I am going to a wedding tomorrow. My sister is staying with mom. We are going to leave her in bed all day so my sister won't have to use the lift to get her in and out of bed . She is so scared of the lift.
  My son is going camping this weekend. He was going to the wedding with me but got a better offer. Now I am on my own. That might be fun and it might not. I have to drive 2 hours to get to  there. Lets just hope it is a nice day. This is the third wedding I have been to in less then a year I think.
I do like weddings because of the reception. I love food. And I like to watch the other people dance if that is going on. At one of the weddings you were suppose to give the bride or groom a dollar to dance with them. We tried to get my niece to dance with the groom but she would not. I think she kept the dollar I gave her for herself. It was fun anyway. The aid just came to give mom a bath. After the aid leaves I will get mom up and feed her lunch. I already gave her a breakfast shake with all her medicines in it to hold her over till lunch or brunch. I will feed her again before I put her down for her afternoon nap so I guess that will be lunch. Than up again at 4 to get her ready for supper. Up and Down all day. She might like getting to stay in bed   tomorrow. I hope everyone as a great weekend. And lets pray for the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami today.


  1. Have a wonderful time at the wedding. It will be so good for you to get out where people are joyful and full of happiness. Sometimes we caregivers forget how to be joyful. Hugs, Latane

  2. Karen,

    So your mom gets her medicine in a shake. I forgot that. Good detail for me to note. Do you ever hurt your back taking care of your mom? Mine is getting stronger going to the chiropractor now.

    Yes, lots to pray about in the world. Sometimes we caregivers get so wrapped up in our concerns that we forget to realize whatelse is happening.

    Enjoy yourself tomorrow.


  3. Thanks , I am trying to figure out what to wear to the wedding. I need a new dress. LOL!
    My back does get sore but I think it is from being pooped out all the time. The Lift keeps me from straining it.

  4. Tomorrow will start out a little cool (upper 30's) but by 9 or so should be very nice, looking for a high around 67. Will be sunny all over the area, so you should have a perfect day for a road trip. Go have fun and enjoy yourself. You've earned it!

  5. Thanks . I am ready for a nice day .

  6. Yea..... I'm so glad you're going to the wedding. You need the fellowship that will be involved with the wedding.... the 2 hour drive should be relaxing too.
    Be safe and enjoy!

  7. Hope you had a great time at the wedding and you had nice weather for traveling.


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