Alzheimer’s Gifts

MLT Xmas Gif_150t

It is the time of the year for giving and receiving gifts. If you have read my book, The Gift of Alzheimer’s, you will know about the gifts my mother, while suffering from Alzheimer’s, gave me and the gifts I gave her.

I imagine most people are too busy now to be reading long, heavy blogs, so this is short but profound.

We can’t say “thank you” too often for the precious gifts we receive from our loved ones. So I am going to remember some of these now.

The gifts I gave my Mother:

            My time

    Companionship

            Compassion

            Love

            Understanding

            Validation

            Appreciation   

The gifts my Mother gave me:

            Love   

            Appreciation

            Companionship

            Joy

            Wisdom

            Insight into Alzheimer’s

            Insight into her Other World

 

My mother’s gifts to us all:

“Love is what it is.”

“The stillness of deep love.”

“I am at peace. I have no worries or fears.”

“We are learning we are immortal.”

“Death is nothing to be afraid of.”

“I love everyone.”

“Love never dies.”

Pat (Mum)

Wishing you many gifts and blessings and looking forward to the next stage of our journey together.
