Hard to see our parent's suffer, but so grand when they can sit up and recognize their Savior!! I know the emotion you write with.

Wow! I loved the ending, especially the subtlety of Margaret recognizing Harry once again. Well done!

Beautiful ending (and title in relation to the story!) You've made a life-situation that was so heart-breaking to be so up-lifting. I think this is a wonderful story! I really, really like this!
What a beautiful story of love and commitment.
This was heart wrenching, and so endearing. What an absolutely wonderful ending. I was almost afraid to keep reading as I didn't expect a joyful ending. Well done!

This is such an honest account of the heartbreak of our parents aging. I love where you ended it - I would have been tempted to tack on something, but this is perfect.

This is well written. I loved how it ended with God's gift to your father of a return of her memory and the sharing of her dying vision. Touched my heart.

Didn't get the "wow" here, as Christians, that is our expected end. But overall writing and content was excellent good job.
Congrates Connie! I'm so glad for you. A tender story, and thought provoking. You take the time to comment for others on the weekly challenges. You're one cool christian.
Amen.

WOW! A superb job on a very difficult topic. This disease is so heartbreaking...I lost my father-in-law to this one. We lose them before we "lose" them...so hard on loved ones.
Congratulations--so deserved.
As one who watched my own father suffer from Alzheimer's, I can appreciate the emotions in this piece. Great ending. Well done.
