Know what else happened this week?

I dealt with our neighbour-at-the-lake. Which, can I say, was VERY draining.
And I dealt with the landscaper-at-the-lake.
And my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimers. Which makes me cry about 20 times a day. And it never leaves my mind. And it makes me feel sick. And sad. And I don't want him to have it. And I don't want people to avoid him. Or treat him like an idiot. And I don't know what to do, but I know this changes everything. And have I mentioned that it's always on my mind? And that I cry alot?

And I really wish he didn't have it. And it makes me so very very sad.
Three things I'm thankful for:
1. I could take 15 minutes today to snap a few photos and blog.
2. God answers prayer.
3. Sunsets
Shalom,

Hard for you to believe right now, but there will come a time when you will take these experiences and sit back in amazement over what God is going to do. You will also (as you already are) be an incredible blessing to others as you share what you are going through. But the time of tears is for a season. He doesn't keep us there. Cry for now, but there will be a time in the future when you will have big bright smiles----and so will your dad.
