I watched a documentary today about Glenn Campbell's last tour while battling Alzheimer's. It was gut-wrenching but an important story about living with the disease. The hardest part for me was when he sang a song written by his daughter.  The lyrics, "Don't worry, Daddy. I'll do the remembering," just about sent me over the edge. Since I started taking an anti-depressant several years ago to help me sleep I haven't been able to cry. Occasionally I well up, but tears never roll down my face. I kind of miss crying although I cried way too much for a normal person. At least I can go see a sad movie without worrying about what I look like when I walk out. But I digress... one tear did fall on my face while watching this movie. Alzheimer's is a truly horrible disease and I'm so grateful I didn't have to face it with either of my parents. I pray for those who do.

  1. Thanks for missing us at Christmas, we missed being with you, too. Sounds like you've been having fun and no one deserves it more than you. Our churches prayed for you on Christmas day, especially the kids at St. Penny's, so maybe we're helping you have fun. Hoping to see you this summer. Drink some champagne for us (can't get it here) and toast to a kindler, gentler year in 2016. We love you.
