Thank you for sharing this with us. My heart goes out to you and I thank you for being such an incredible witness of Christ, in how you are sustained by His strength and presence, with appears to be unwavering and steadfast in all you do.

God bless you and your husband as you go through this incredibly difficult journey, may the LORD continue to uphold you with His right hand of righteousness.
I encourage others to share their experiences of caring for a loved one living with Alzheimer/dementia. Yours is a tender writing filled with a pressing through strength. It speaks true to life and will resonate with many.
Dearest Bonnie,

Congratulations on your EC for sharing your heart with us.

It's a tender yet bitter sweet win, I know you'd rather not win than having to share this non-fiction story with us.

But, such as it will have touched many hearts. Continue speaking about it, as so many are going through what you are experiencing.

God Bless you~
Wow this is such a powerful piece. You painted such vivid mental pictures. I felt like I was right there with your MC. I also think how wonderful that with many things Lee has lost, the one thing that stays with him is God. That's true for all of us and even though at times it seems terrible, there truly isn't a better place to be than in the hand of God and with a loving wife. I'm sure you've looked into respite services to give yourself that rest, but don't be afraid to accept it. I'm not in your position, so I've no idea how hard it might be, but I feel God prompting me to say, please look into that respite. Congratulations on your EC. Your story will touch people in ways you can't imagine. Happy Dance!
This is so touching! Well done. Congratulations.
