In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. –Psalm 5:3
If you are a child of the 70s and 80s and are now a bit more conservative, like me, I bet you struggle with going back and reading the lyrics of the songs you used to love “back in the day”. I didn’t realize the Beatles song mentioned in the title was quite as scandalous as it was. I guess I mumbled words a lot when I sang. 🙂 Despite the fact that drug use is promoted in this iconic song (as many of their songs did), it is still super catchy.
I got some great news this weekend about our little fundraiser!!! My brother and a subcontractor (Danny Rains) that he used for a project collaborated to provide matching funds for the next $1000 donated through May 16th! That means if you donate $1 they will match it with a buck as well….up to a total of $1000. If we can raise the full $1000, we will be 3/4 of the way to our $5280 goal for these two wonderful organizations!

I particularly love this not only because it will get us closer to our goal, but because it also exemplifies our need of teamwork. Taking care of someone with dementia requires a team in the same way as it will take lots of folks to find a cure. Not everyone is a running type. Some are donation types and praying types and encouraging types and the rest… I sure the heck ain’t much of a runner, but I am trying. 😉 I did run 27 miles Saturday, but it took me over 7 hours total…or about 5 hours longer than it does a skilled marathoner. I leaned on my family for hydration and encouragement too. Such is this fight to #endALZ
I hope to provide you with a more thorough post Wednesday. Today was a super crazy day at work. Someone stole our catalytic convertor off of our second van. This is the second such headache in the last 2 months and it is happening all over town. Very frustrating 🙁
Update: Nothing new to post about mom. I have spoken to the staff and my sister and all is level for now. I hope to see her Thursday for my whopping 15 minutes a week. Better than nothing.
Thank you all for the encouragement and the patience with me on down days like today. You are the best thing about Digital Cornbread!
