I remember all the time while I was growing up and even after I was out of the house my mom would decorate for all the Holidays.  She loved it so much and now since she has Alzheimer’s she has lost interest in doing that.  For Valentine’s day she would put conversation hearts in a little candy dish and window clings up on the window.  She always had red twinkling lights up too.  It was always so nice and see all the decorations that she spent time putting up.

On Easter she had a little Easter tree with Easter eggs dangling on it.  She really loved decorating for all the Holidays.  I know all my family enjoyed it.  I really miss that amongst other things.  It sometimes seems like a life time ago.  It’s so very sad all these memories can be erased from your mind and they may not return.  I know they are still there somewhere but we all have to work extra hard to try and help this person find them again.

So this year Thanksgiving and Christmas will come again and maybe my mom will remember and maybe she won’t.  I know I will try my very best to love her no matter what and I will take a great deal of pictures because nothing will replace that time.  God please touch and my mom and help her to remember.  😊

    I think it is usually the little things that hit home the most. During the last few months of his life, my grandfather began to deteriorate. He no longer sat me on his lap and remembered to give me extra strong mints like he had since before I could even remember. Those little memories are the most precious, but because they are small things, sometimes they slip away. Anyway, I am praying for your mother and that she will be able to gain these memories back 🙂


Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you come back and find it helpful. 😊
