Today I am giving honor to my mom. I found the most special way to do this through the virtual quilt patch on the side of my blog. My mom has Alzheimer's and was given this diagnosis 15 years ago this year. This disease can last as long as 20 years, but the average is 8. To say these 15 years have been difficult is an understatement.
It is heartbreaking to know she has not seen how wonderful our daughters have grown up to be or to meet the terrific men they have married. She has never seen our precious Natalie. When she was well, she lived a godly life and prayed for her family and friends constantly. So many of her prayers have been answered, and for that I am thankful.
If you know of someone with this disease or who has passed away because of it, you can click here which will take you to the website where you can make your patch as well. Place the Virtual Quilt Patch you created on your web site or blog to honor and remember someone who has/had Alzheimer's.
