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

Twenty One!!!

The 15th of this month my baby boy will be 21. I have to say he is totally all grown up all ready . He is putting himself through college, helps me buy food  while paying his own bills. He is hardly ever home but when he is on his way he calls to see what we need. Which seems to always be milk and eggs. I bet you can guess what he won't pick up for me at the store. Adult Diapers. LOL! I don't blame him. But I like to tease him  about it . He says I will come home and you can go shopping while I watch grandma. That works. LOL!
Anyway,I  went and got the grill that was on lay-a-way for his birthday Sat. and had my brother come in to put it together. My neice and I wrapped it . Now  we  are just waiting for him to come home.  He went to Atlanta with his Frat brothers Fri. Hopefully he will come by tonight.
Do you think he will guess what it is?

I gave mom a haircut this morning. We went a little shorter this time but it was getting all fuzzy . When it is short it just curls up. She has the prettiest hair. It is salt and pepper. I have noticed a lot of grays in my hair lately. Not good.
My sister is coming over sometime today and I am going to go check out the Goodwill stores again. Hopefully lots of goodies waiting for me. And we are waiting on the nurse. The aid came early and after she left I got mom up to cut her hair and than feed her. Well she did a dirty job during her hair cut. But instead of putting her right back to bed I did a fast haircut and she had a fast bowl of grits . Than off to bed to be cleaned up again. Now she is napping. Ok, I am ready to get out of here. Think I will go call my sister and see where in the heck she is. Have a great week . Hope you did not get too many Aprils Fools jokes pulled on you the 1st.

    I bet he'll love his great gift.

    It's so good you can cut your mom's hair. I'd hate to think what anyone's hair would look like if I tried cutting hair.

    Good luck at the Good Will store....hope you found some goodies!
