I Have the Greatest Mother's Day Gift Of All....

Mother's Day is this Sunday as I am sure you are all aware.  Children everywhere will be taking mom to lunch, giving her pretty cards, gifts, and just making her day special.

Our mother's are the ones who set our feet on the path of life, they comfort us, correct us, and love us no matter what!  When you were a child and had a bad dream they comforted you and told you it would be okay, when you became a teenager and had your heart broke for the first time she knew just what to say to get you through what you thought was the worse time of your life.  Then we hit our twenties and made dumb mistakes, (I know I did) but there was Mom to catch me and help me get back on my feet.  I knew no matter what happened I could always go home and Mom would hug me and tell me everything was going to be okay.

But those days are over for me now as my Mom suffers from Dementia and now lives with me.  It is now me who comforts her when on her really bad days she is confused, Mom can no longer cook for herself, take her medicine without help, and needs help with the basic everyday tasks in life.  Some days can be trying and stressful but Faith, Prayer, and my wonderful sister Kim get me through those days.

You may be asking why I think a Mother with Dementia is a great gift.  Because Mom gave me so much over the course of my life and taught me about caring and love, now I can return that gift back to her and Love is the greatest gift of all!

I treasure everyday with my Mother, as dementia does not get better, I know over time things will go from bad to worse, but as long as I am able I will take care of my Mom and give back to her everything she gave to me.

Home is where Mom is and where Mom is there is Love - The greatest gift of all!

  1. Just beautful Marsha! You have a wonderful mother and she has a wonderful daughter in you as well:) I am very blessed to have that kind of mom and I hope someday if she needs me that I can do as much for her as she has always done for me:)

  2. Great post Marsha! I had a taste of what you go through each day over the past several months, my mom was too sick to care for in my home but I was with her each evening to sit with her and tuck her in. She passed away two weeks ago, and I'm so glad that I had time with her each day. Give your mom a hug from me :) Shannon

  3. Thank You very much ladies, Shannon I am so sorry about the loss of your Mother. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you both for taking the time to read my post and say such kind words. ♥♥
