If Sheri were honest she would tell you she has had a life time struggle with "stuff ". Not valuable stuff, just stuff. she is sure if she dug deep enough she would be able to figure out why, but she no longer feels the need to spend precious time figuring that out. Her last move from the house she raised her children in was extremely traumatic for her in so many ways. As she prepares to move again she truly feels the desire to lighten her load and has been trying to get rid of excess baggage. There has been something much more therapeutic then traumatic about this process this time. Accepting and understanding that the things of this world are far less important than caring for the broken and hurting in this world is etched on her heart. Maybe, just maybe Sheri needed to be this broken to feel the brokenness of others.
Sheri needs to pause, praise and pray.
Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
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.
