So this has just been a weird week, I have been all out of sorts. The high school I teach at had early dismissals at 1:00 all week due to mid-terms, we have a snow day today, we got out early yesterday for snow…….Friday will be my only normal, full day of school all week. And to top it all off we are leaving for a special ski trip on Sunday…..
But my Friday Fave Five must go on……..I will push through snow, tiredness, PMS, a Cinnamon Roll overdose and an extreme sock and glove matching marathon to bring you my Friday Fave Five!
So this is me! Yep every wife who is married to a sweet husband, but one who suffers to soon in life from the horrors of Alzheimer’s must do something like this every once in a while!!! 🙂 It’s much better than therapy! We had a blast sledding at a nearby hill on our snow day Thursday!
A dear christian women who I don’t even know sent me this devotional in the mail. “Stream in the Desert” by L.B Cowman. I am really enjoying it, the words seem to jump from the pages to my heart! What a gem it is and so is the lady who sent it to me!
I have found this really cool support group on facebook, called “Memory People” It’s a great way to hear form others who deal with Alzheimer’s and there are many there who also have Early Onset! Which is nice, cuz sometimes I feel like I am the only person on the planet dealing with this….
Curt has become an picture taking junkie since being home. And two of his recent sports pics were even published in our local small town paper. This has been so good for him and it keeps him busy.
There are so many things he can still do, and do well, that it is nice to focus on those things also!
He also still does our finances, is now the clean up the dishes expert, shovels a mean driveway, planned and booked a ski trip for us and can still play drums with the best of them!
And lastly do pray for us, we are heading to Vermont for our ski vacation. You can read more about how it was paid for here.
Curt really wanted to take the kids while he can still ski. Please pray that it will be a good memory maker for all of us. Pray for safety as we drive ( our van does have 4 wheel drive!), since I know I will be driving a lot of the trip ( Usually I read, and sleep while Curt drives). Safety for everyone skiing ( I can’t ski anymore I have a torn ACL in my knee) and pray for Tyler and Madi that they will be patient with Curt’s difficulties….easier for me, but harder for 2 teens! We cherish your prayers!!
