Sheri had a God moment yesterday. Feeling somewhat sorry for herself, and knowing Bob and "Al" had no idea it was their anniversary, Sheri took the day off and sent the boys off on the bus to the Day Center anyway and claimed the day as her own. She set off early with her camera to catch the sunrise hoping for spectacular color. Sheri was disappointed when she approached the park and there was just a dark haze in the sky. There she stood bundled up staring at sky. As she stared at the barren trees with their dark outlined against the gray blue sky, the image was beautiful and Sheri started snapping pictures Then it happened. The vision she sees most often of Alzheimer's in the brain is what they call "tangles." As she stared at the beauty of the twisted branches in the trees, she heard a whisper of a voice in her ear telling her to see the beauty in the "tangles", Sheri began to cry and then the cry turned into joy and beauty. She began to see that she needs to see the beauty of the "tangles" of Alzheimer's like she sees the beauty of the tangles of the trees. God is good all the time.
