I received this beautiful heart from my dear cousin, Marlene. It was given in honor of recognizing the loving care that I am giving to my dear aging parents. They are both 90 years of age, my father lives with me and my mom is in an Alzheimer’s Assisted Living facility. I visit my mom in her home away from home almost every day and love her with my whole heart and soul. The journey of being the caregiver to both of my parents and bearing witness to the aging process and changes that accompany both of my parents is exhausting on many levels. I know that God walks with me every step of the way and that we are in the thoughts and prayers of those who know our story. There is joy and sadness in this journey and I would not trade it for anything in the world. I love my parents and will continue to do all that I can to help them along this phase of their lives. I am grateful to be able to accompany them as they walk this journey.
