thinking of Mum


good monday morning ... hope you all had a great weekend ... just wanted to pop in and show you a little card I have made for my dear Mum ...

I always make her a little card for March 13th its the day we lost Dad to that awful Alzheimer's and although she thinks about him every day this day is particularly painful

the problem is I think Mum is going down the same path ... ooo so sad to see ... her memory problems are put down to vascular dementia tho instead of Alzheimer's ... but it is still painful

we are attending a memory clinic every Thursday at the moment and I am enjoying it ... seems a funny thing to enjoy but they have speakers and the topics are memory related so I think it is helping.

thank you for visiting me today and wow thank you for all the lovely comments on my dear friends retirement card ...

have a great week everybody

This card is really special, Sandy. Love the papers you used and the image as well. Your Mum is going to love it and you are certainly going to put a smile on her face as soon as she sees it. Sorry to hear she is on the same path as her dear hubby was but I hope with the help of memory clinic she is going to improve.

A lovely card -sorry to hear about your Mum and Dad I lost my Mum to this terrible disease-I knew my Mum didn't know me anymore but one terrible day she asked me who I was and when I told her she said sorry I don't remember you -that day I cried all the way home still upsets me -yet she called one of the carers Carol and when my O/H went she said hiya John how is your knee (he has osteo arthritis)!!!!!!!!!!!!!
