Sheri was sitting in the living room with the "boys" listening to hymns radio on pandora this morning. Bob and "Al" already working on their nuts and bolts, when "It is well with my soul" came on. Hearing Bob sing out loud to the song brought tears to her eyes. Joyful by living in the moment is all we are promised. "Al" smiled as he sang and turned to Sheri and sang with her "it is well, it well with my soul". It was like a subtle yet clear message from God that Bob is happy inside himself. Sheri is grateful for another day.
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.
