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.

Sweet and Beautiful
I love this print. My mother purchased this print back in the early 1970's when my sister and I were young. This print made mom think of herself as a young mother with her two young daughters, Camille and me. Last year Camille and I put it in the estate sale after our parents moved out of their home. It had been in storage in their basement for seveal years, the frame was old and the glass was broken. When it didn't sell at the estate sale I decided to take it. I took it out of it's old frame and put it in a new, prettier frame and it now hangs in my home. I am so glad that I have it because now it will always remind me of Mom and how much she loved (loves) Camille and me.
