Optimism

i do make myself sick sometimes. alzheimers on oprah today. minutes after pointing out to my mom that the absolute worst thing ever would be NOT forgetting this - i used to know, things used to click, life used to be easy - and not remembering how to make it easy again..

actually.. only seconds afterwards.. mom told me that nancy said something once about how it was so terribly cruel, that all their lives, she'd always thought that when they got old, at least they'd have their memories, and to have those taken away.. i told her that wasn't the worst thing ever.. because he still had her, and that was even more important.

want to read: Losing My Mind.
remembered a book i loved: Flowers For Algernon.

and when it comes down to it, he and her and never giving that up is the most important.
