Just think in two days I get to see my mom. Wow only two days. It has been four months exactly, since my last visit to her. I live in new York and Ruthie lives in Florida. I always get so excited to see her and then when I am actually with her, many more feeling come up for me.
For me to be able to deal with everything that I saw happening to my mom ( since she has Alzheimer's )I decided to write about my feelings in a journal. This is how I began writing a memoir(draft) about my mom, and our new found relationship. As of today I am writing most days in my blog and loving every second of it.
I am still in such amazement about how much my moms courage and strength has inspired me. If you think about it I have two choices. One would be that I could walk around upset, for all that she has lost, and the other is, that I can hold on to all that she still has left. The biggest one for me is that she still knows who I am.
