This is my mother . . .
She is quite the beauty . . . both inside and out!!
She is smart, kind and a joy to be with . . .
She is a sweet soft-spoken intellectual,
a gifted athlete and artist . . .
and a great mom to myself . . .
and my two brothers!!
also has Alzheimer's (which her mother also had)
and has been struggling with it for years . . .
and this last week over spring break . . .
my mom had a small stroke
to the right side of her brain
and is now recovering at a center
that understands both her Alzheimer's and
her weakness from the stroke.
Each day is now different from the one before . . .
it was not the kind of visit we had planned for spring break - but I am grateful I had the time to be with both her and my father.
My dad has always been by my mom's side . . .
ever since they very first met!!
They fell in love, married . . .
and have been the best of friends (true soul mates) ever since . . .
they have literally sailed through life together . . .
finding happiness in each and every situation. . .
but . . . always together . . . always!!
To live with such love is a true gift . . .
my heart is with you both . . . I send you all my love,
blessings . . . your daughter - liz
