I began this blog shortly after my mother was diagnosed with the disease mostly to clear my head. I was losing sleep, due to worry, fear, frustration. When Mom began forgetting I began to mourn losing her and actually began to distance myself from her. It was difficult for me to watch her slip away mentally over several years.
Mom passed away August 8, 2012 and now blogging is helping me come to terms with her physical death.

Mom and Me
Tonight I found this picture of Mom and me from one of my bridal showers, probably in late March or early April of 2000. This is how I want to remember my mom. This is how I want to remember feeling about my mom and I want to remember my mom loving me.
