Breaking heart


My heart is breaking as my mother's brain is dying from Alzheimer's Disease. The little girl inside of me, who always wants to make sure Mummy is OK, cannot always do that now. The grown up part of me has to take them both by the hand and lead them through this scary and bewildering forest.

  1. Oh Paula, I'm so sorry you're having to go through this with your mother. Alzheimer's is such a devastating and dreadful disease, and to watch our loved ones lose their brain little by little is the most painful thing to experience.

    The picture is so sweet.

    Keeping you in my prayers..
    Hugs,
