We’ve cancelled Thanksgiving. Well, that’s not entirely true. It’s more like e have postponed it. It seems that my brother’s family is passing around one of those early winter head colds and we don’t want to pass it to my Mom and Dad. So, if everything goes well, our Thanksgiving will be next weekend. We will also be celebrating Dad’s birthday at the same time.
I guess there is something positive to come out of Alzheimer’s. Since Dad has no concept of time anymore, we can make any day special. He will celebrate whatever we tell him we are celebrating and never doubt us.
For those of you reading this, I wish you a Thanksgiving of peace and the treasure of making one more memory. Be grateful, if even in some small way, because Alzheimer’s has shown my family that what you have today can be gone tomorrow. Blessings to you and yours!
