Pay no mind
when her mind
no longer recognizes you.
Had to read this several times. So much captured in few words. I went through this with my mom, who passed away last September.
I’m so sorry. ❤
I’ll have to keep this in mind, Marie. My mom isn’t there yet, either, but the way her memory is faltering, I wonder how much time I have before she won’t know me anymore. It’s tough to watch a parent lose their vitality.
It really is. It sounds like they’re making progress with different types of dementia. Praying it’s fast and furious progress.
Those last lines are good and much easier to remember than to be consistent with. Like you I have a mother who is far from that situation. However, when at times she is not thinking rationally, it is hard to know what the loving thing is to do and to do it.
So true, Sheryl. My heart is with you.
This completely obliterates my heart, each time I read it. Such truth here. Such sadness.
Thank you De. I’m thankful Mom isn’t there yet. ❤
