A New Idea

This blog has been a godsend for me as it allowed me to express myself while I cared for my husband. I've made some really special friends and sure don't want to lose contact with those. However, I feel that it is time that I start a new blog, to focus on what I need to do as I move forward past the Alzheimers and the grief.

I sure hope I don't lose any of you but if I do I understand. Caregiving is a very trying and exhausting job. I love you all and wish the very best for each of you. I'll be checking in on you from time to time. I do hope that you will just move on over with me.....Down the Rabbit Hole.

It's amazing (or perhaps not knowing how connected we always were) how often I dream something about Elbert. My latest was so 'Elbert'. That man loved attention, whether he was getting it or giving it.

I dreamed that we had gone to an outdoor concert and was sitting way up from the band in a sort of train car box with lots of other people in the seats around us. The band director announced 'There are people here from Alabama' and I dreamed that Elbert stood up, waving his hand and yelled, 'We are right here'. Oh, so Elbert.

How comforting it is to still have him with me in my dreams.
