I didn't get out to walk yesterday, but overall, it was a good day. Picked up my father-in-law for worship service and potluck. We went to the cemetery to visit my mother-in-law's grave. Dad broke down, but he did remember what she died of. It is so difficult to see him having to relive being told Mom died almost 2 years ago. He has a mental block to her death. I picked up some pink roses for Dad to put on her grave. Mom loved pink roses.
Roger took his Dad back to the care facility. He looked very upset when he got home. He said he thought about his Dad and Grandpa and knows that since both of them have/had Alzheimer's that he's going to have it also, and he doesn't want to be a burden to his family. I pray that he will not be affected with this disease. It's in God's hands now.
It's now 3 weeks before I show at my first Craft Show in Alta, IA. I have a lot of embellishments to finish and my die cutting machine died. Roger tore it apart and has e-mailed the company to see if he can get a replacement for the gear I stripped. In the meantime, I have another machine, but it's not very user friendly - but we grow through challenges. Attitude, attitude, attitude - keep it positive. I'm really excited about the craft show, but also, a little apprehensive.
