The latest auction starts on Wednesday. Go take a look at these beautiful mini quilts. Maybe you might feel inspired to make a piece of your own to donate :)
My first real introduction to Alzheimer's was a hospital stay when we were living in Michigan. My "roomie" for a few days was an older lady with Alzheimer's. When she was lucid she told me how she felt inside when she was having one of her "moments" and how that impacted her "normal" self. She was still at the stage of being aware of what was happening as she "switched" from one to the other and "watched" herself do and think strange things. She was well aware that as the disease progressed she would lose her normal self and she grieved for that. However she chose to be cheerful about her condition. I was able to gently help her through a day of her "other self" while we were together and help her keep her dignity.
