Sheri has many things to be thankful for. She has a great church family that helps her in more ways then she can count. She can look back at her faith journey and see exactly why God placed certain people in her life. Those people have become her family. They have not hesitated to support her. One gave her an air conditioner for her tiny rented house, another has fixed her car... both have listen to her vent about this hand she has been dealt, without judgment. Her small group bible study provides emotional stability for Sheri, Bob and "Al". She only hopes she can bless all of them someday the way she is blessed by them. This is the true meaning a being a part of God's family, and Sheri is not ashamed to admit it.
This blog is about life with my husband who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Frontal Lobe Dementia in 2008. He was 64 at the time although now, knowing more about the disease, Alzheimer's was present many, many years ago, which is why early detection is so important. As you read the blog the character"Al" that I created in 2008 represents the way that Alzheimer's is invading our daily lives.
