Sad, but also joyful. You clearly showed the emotions of the MC and the heartbreak of the disease.

Oh my heart goes out to you. Having worked in the Nursing home industry my whole career, I know first hand watching the affect this horrible disease takes on for the patient, and the emotional drain and sorrow on the family.

You captured the essence of the emotions beautifully in your words, and how wonderful and blessed to have such a daughter as you.

Your mom truly is rejoicing and living in heaven, where you will join her one day...and at that time, you will never have to say goodbye again!

My condolences for your significant loss.

God bless you~

What a beautiful story. I have worked in memory care units, and relate to the emotions and distress that surrounds Alzheimer and dementia patients. Good job on this one.
This is a very well written piece with both joy and sorrow vividly expressed.

The value of this piece can first be seen in the resulting joy the author has obtained. Secondly, value can be felt by others seeking their joy while enduring a similar journey.

As you reread this piece you may see scenes that bring both joy and sorrow but with great peace having done what Jesus would have wanted you to do.
