It's the hardest thing I have ever done and I'm not finished yet! My mom has vascular dementia.
It's a terrible disease but I believe we have to find ways to laugh whenever possible. One example of this is when I found mom's silverware stuffed in the Kleenex box! lol
You will be much happier and live longer if you learn to laugh instead of crying or fretting. (I'm talking to myself here too 'cause trust me, I haven't totally mastered it yet either!)
Key Components to my life are Faith, Family, and prayer, but somedays you just need to make a batch of cookies and pig out!
I gain inspiration from the bible. When I read certain scriptures, it empowers me. Like Philippians 4:13, which reminds me, "I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me."
