Peeking Through the Clouds

I went to see my Dad last night.   He asked me what my name was and where I lived.  

Any time someone with dementia experiences a traumatic experience, it seems to set them back in their memories.   That is how it is with Dad.   He is remembering a lot of the past but not much of the present day. 

He drew me a picture last night and showed me how to make a chain with yarn.   His creative side was working well.  

Today, he could not draw.  

It could be that this surgery has advanced his dementia and that he may not regain all his memories.  It is really hard on my Mom, when he doesn’t remember.  Please remember them both in your prayers.  🙂

I firmly believe that God has His hand on my dad and everything will work out as planned.

My morning started with thunder rolling and lightning striking.   It would rain hard and then rain softly, and took turns that way, all day.    This evening on the way home, I saw the moon peeking through the clouds, as the storms moved on out.   It was beautiful shining through the clouds, but unfortunately, when we got home, both of the cameras’ batteries were low and I did not get a good clear picture.
Sorry, I don’t have much to share today.  Tired I guess.  🙂
Here’s wishing you a fabulous Friday!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. Thanks Kelli! Today Dad wasn't responding much, but he did eat his supper on his own and did a few arm exercises with me. I have noticed a pattern with him… he has an alert active day, then he has a day where he is not functioning as well. But I feel that if we work with him everyday, it will help. 🙂


  2. I will keep them in my prayers for sure. My Gpa had Alzheimer's and would tell me each time I saw him how nice it was “to meet me, and to come back to visit any time and if I ever needed anything, just come by and ask”. It was def. hard, but the last time he saw my dad before he passed, he was rarely talking then, he looked up and said “There's my boy.” A moment of clarity. Amazing drawing your dad did!
