Memorable car of the day:
I remember when these cars were common on the road, these are 1950 Packards.
The pastor in a discussion group with old folks when someone
suggested, playing a word game. Someone will say a word and the rest will come up
with a hymns or song that fits. It started:
SKY ……. Heavenly Sunshine
Prayer….. In the Garden.
It went on for a few more and an old gent in the back said;
SEX… It all got quiet,,,,, And Granny Lloyd said quietly…
Go ahead smile!
Today as I read blogs. I enjoyed your thoughts and
ideas. I read about family memories
on Woody and Diana’s blogs. SWEET and
bitter sweet memories.
I have known some very good, intelligent hard working people who
were attacked by the dreaded illness, Alzheimer’s! Kenneth C whom I admired and
was a hero of mine did not know me the last time I saw him. His daughter said she had walked thru his
living room and he said to someone there, ‘She acts like she knows me.’
Mozelle, a SIL said when I asked her how she was doing she
smiled saying, “They tell me some days I’m here and some days I am not. Right
now I’m here.” She finally lost her memory completely.
Sister Shirley was cognizant until she died, but she knew she
had a problem, we heard this until she passed, “I am losing my memory and it is
worrying me to DEATH!”
Someone who KNEW you but doesn’t NOW, seems to have a blank
look. It is hard to explain. I have to
admit during my life time I have wished I had no memory i.e. When terrible memories keep you awake, etc. The wish doesn’t last long, because there are
good ones you NEVER want to forget.
As I get older I am losing words and some events. Sherry
will say, oh you remember that, we did this or that last week. Everyone tells
me it is normal.
An old joke:
“George, I think it is so sweet you are always calling your wife lover,
sweetheart and darling.”
Have you ever thought what it would be like to have NO
PAST! Some ‘LOST’ people settle with
going thru a routine, but others wonder and brood, because of NOT KNOWING!
So if you really need something to appreciate and be thankful for,
just THINK back when you were a little
cowboy or cowgirl. When you were a, princess, ballet dancer or a train
