I read a friend’s post today and could empathize in my own situation. This is what she wrote:
“My husband was diagnosed with Temporal frontal lobe dementia in in 2014. His progression has been gradual until this past year and now it is increasingly progressing. It is the saddest thing I have had to watch in my entire life. To see a strong larger than life man slowly become less. The only thing I can be thankful for is that he doesn’t realize it. I am blessed with wonderful kids who help me as much as they can but unfortunately there are only some things they can help with because he needs to have consistency as much as possible and that’s me. As frustrated as I sometimes get I wouldn’t trade a moment that I can spend with him. I will treasure whatever time good or difficult that we have together. Please cherish your time with your loved ones because we never know what is ahead.”
I got in touch with her and we chatted a bit about the struggle and God’s grace in the midst of it all. It was great to read her words of encouragement and inspiration. She is an amazing caregiver, wife, mother, and faithful servant of God.
I Found God today in faithful, unconditional love.
