My Grandmother is 73 years old and she has Alzheimer’s Disease. It is a very hard thing to watch. At times there are some moments of humor, but for the most part, its very difficult. Its like watching a loved one deteriorate right before your eyes. I see her, my grandmother and I think of all the things that she has done for me, my family and all of her children. It saddens me sometimes at the outcome of this disease. But I still love my grandmother. She has a very huge heart. She has this baby doll that she treats like a real child. If you grab it from her, her facial expression would show “why would you do that to my baby”, as she struggles to communicate and talk to you. Her words are now jumbled up and we cannot really understand what she says. There are times where you cn understand her but for the most part you can’t.
I know that we shouldn’t question the Lord for his actions and why he chooses to do what he does, but I know that my grandmother was a woman of great faith, and she still is. There are times where she still calls on Him and I think that the Lord takes that as praise.
I am blessed and Highly favored because the trials and struggles we encounter through life is what makes our experiences worth while. Its what we learn from. Its what we talk about. and that is LIFE…..
