Memory Walk!! What a great morning!!

Sunday, September 23, 2012

This morning I (grudgingly) got up early to join many many other people in the Boston area to take the Memory Walk....Walk to End Alzheimer's. (I care for my mom with dementia, and my child care program visits an Alzheimer's assisted living residence)I am SO not a morning person. I went with a few families and my employee from my day care center. I am so glad I did!! What a wonderful, uplifting celebration. Thousands of people all came together to raise money for Alzheimer's research. People were dancing, singing, hugging, crying, laughing and celebrating life for those with and without this horrible disease. The weather was awesome, the atmosphere was festive, and it was so wonderful to be a part of something big!
oh, yeah and I got some walking done too!

    That's a terrible thing to have & it's so hard on a family. My husband's mother has it & somedays she doesn't know any of the family. So thank you for what you are doing to help with this problem.
