Posted 12/24/21 (Written 12/23/21…a very pleasing number indeed. 122321 although there really needed to be a second 2 in the back half. BTW…when you get tested for dementia early when you first have a warning sign, you have the potential of taking one of the two main drugs that seem to help the early stage. That makes the sucky-ness (understatement) of the disease more of a 112321(0) scale instead of a 12333333333333331(0) if that makes sense. It does in my head. 😉 We are on the latter scale with mom..currently at the 1.)
“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” John 12:24 (Foretelling Christ’s death and the spread of the Gospel)
I am out of the office, but I wanted to give you a pithy list of articles I have completed about Christmas, in some way or another, as some leftovers until we reconvene after Christmas. I wish you a Merry Christmas…a truly life-giving, joyful, and peaceful time of reflection and smiles. God Bless!
I had a nice visit with mom yesterday. She didn’t really know I was there, for the most part, although I held her hand. You have to make eye contact in the tunnel of perception she has in order for her to train her eyes on you, but there was someone on that side of the table. It was fine…it was just nice to spend Christmas Eve Eve Eve with her a bit. I will see her again tomorrow with my siblings. 🙂
Keep fighting to beat this thing, friends. not only for mom and her peers but for your and your kids’ cohorts too. It is a truly heart-breaking Christmas coal lump…
