"The journey between who you once were and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place."
- Barbara De Angelis
This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...
My sister visited Dad. He is still wearing his sombrero. Maybe Doctor-Doctor gave it to him? Dad was in his wheel chair, in the activity room, getting ready to sing church songs. She took him outside on the patio to enjoy the strawberry shake she had bought him.
It was a beautiful, blustery day. My sister said it had rained last night and some this morning. The sky was an incredible blue with lots of fluffy clouds. Dad had shorts on and with the cold strawberry shake, he was chilled. Doctor-Doctor came out to say hi, and when she saw Dad she quickly ran back inside to get him a blanket.
Here is a picture of Dad and his Angel, Doctor-Doctor. Look how well Dad looks!! He is just flat out amazing how quickly he heals!!!
He had his sombrero and mask on, but it was OK to take it off once he was on the patio. Dad laughed heartily every time Doctor-Doctor rolled her "R's" and said, "Mariachi" to him.
She really brightens his day and it is so easy to see her genuine affection for him.
Dad began to spin a story of how he had played a round of golf with his "ladies" and how he blasted a ball with a 5 iron, getting a hole in one. He boasted how his score was so much better than everyone else. My sister listened intently, smiling with joy and so grateful he seems back to his happy self...
Dad heard everyone singing and wanted to return so he could join them in song. My sister wheeled him back in and kissed him good bye. She hugged him big enough for the entire family
