What a special day with my Mama, She has Alzheimer’s. The two of us were sitting at my kitchen table having fruit and tea. Mama was telling me how lovely my kitchen was and how she was enjoying the fruit. Then she thanked me for having her. I said “Mama I love having you.” She looked at me with the most perplexing look and exclaimed,” What are you saying I am not your Mother! ” I replied as I was pointing to her tummy, “of course you are I grew right in there.” She looked down at her tummy and said, “Are you kidding me!” I was trying my best not to laugh. She was so adorable. I proceeded to tell her bits about our life together. With a big grin on her face and enthusiastically clapping her hands: She said, “That is the most wonderful thing that I have ever heard, it makes me all tingly and soft feeling.” I thought that was just so special… Embrace the beautiful moments in life and cherish them always!

    Reminds me of some of the last days with my mom, Kim. By the way, have you read "Snowangel" by Glen Beck? It's a beautiful story that gives some insight into Alzheimers.
