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

First Lady wrote back! Kind of.

Well, I got an email from Mrs Obama but it was a form letter so you know she really did not read my email or our blogs . Anyway how are all you guys. I have been busy. It has been hot but we have gotten some rain. Mom had a real bad weekend a few weeks ago but she is ok again. My son got us a new tv so we could watch Football in style. We had to rearrange the living room which was a mess. I needed to vaccuum under everything but I had no bags for the vaccuum because I just tossed the last one I had the other day. It was busting at the seams. Oh well everything is covered up again that needed to be cleaned.
Hope all you guys are doing good. Sorry I have not read any blogs for along time. Just can't make myself do it. I am so lazy . I just want to eat and sleep all the time.
The Memory Walk is next month so we are going to make t-shirts the end of this month. Kind of excited about that. Thanks again for the donations and go to a walk in your area. I'm not kidding it is great.
Heres my email from the First Lady .

Dear Karen:
Thank you for sharing your views with me. I am always so encouraged to hear from Americans who are interested and engaged in the democratic process, and I hope you continue to stay involved in these important national discussions in the months and years to come.
As our country faces tough challenges, please know that the President and this Administration are working hard every day to move our country forward. Although we have made enormous progress, there is much left to do-and we need your help. Your engagement is vital, so I urge you to stay involved in your community and in civic life. To learn more about the President's agenda and the latest news from the White House, please visit
Again, thank you for writing. I wish you all the best.

Michelle Obama


  1. Congratulations on getting a response. Perhaps one of her staff actually took time to read your blog. I've missed your posts and wondered how you mom is doing. Hugs from TN.

  2. I wonder what Michelle has done for Alzheimer's. Have missed your blog, but do see you on FB often and think of you just as often.


  3. I'm glad you posted, I've been wondering how You and your mother are doing.. No apologies necessary for not reading blogs, it gets overwhelming, and you have so much on your shoulders. Hugs


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