Happy Birthday

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled

Taken at noon 27 July 2021

Today, Mike is 74. For the past several years I have ” kidnapped” him to go on a lengthy vacation. We had to turn off life support for our daughter, 14 years ago, today. So I would use the vacation as time to focus on Mike.

Today we had a quiet day, we went to the chiropractor, then to Michael D’s, and my Mike ordered 2 blueberry pancakes. Those things were as big as the plate! And he ate both 🙂🙂❤

After we got home, Mike began to ask if his lunch buddies were going to be having cake with him tomorrow. I said no, just the folks at the Bennett House. He said that was good, because he doesn’t want the lunch buddies to know he has dementia 😳😳 He then proceeded to tell me he’s glad that no one,outside of our family, is aware of this! Seriously??!! Oh My!

I didn’t enlighten him, what good would that do? Just upset him, or make him feel self conscious? Nope, it’s not worth it. He can go on believing no one is aware.

I may get frustrated, and upset, but I won’t do anything, on purpose, to cause him any more distress.

Today was a good day, quiet and relaxing, and there was a little rain.
