Dementia and WHY?

I went boot shopping.  It was not a pleasant experience.  My husband felt I should own a pair of boots for the winter, and he suggested I find a nice pair.  While shopping I came upon these boots.  Are they not the craziest things?  Who would wear them?  I don’t know who WOULD wear them, but I know who would NOT wear them.

Many things in life cause me to stop and ask WHY?  Why does my house get dirty before I finish cleaning?  Why does the dirty clothes hamper fill up much more quickly than it is emptied?  Why does my head hurt right when I need it to feel good so I can be productive?  Why does Momma have Alzheimer’s?

I have no answer to any of these questions.  I do, however, have a presence of peace.  I rest in the comfort of knowing God has a plan for my house cleaning, the laundry chores, my headaches, and my Momma.  He is not surprised by anything that happens in my day.  His ways are better than my ways, and Jeremiah 29:11 tells me He has a plan for me that will cause me to prosper and have a future and a hope.

Works for me!  I hope you have that same presence of peace.  If you DO NOT drop me a note, and we will talk!   If you DO have that same presence of peace, drop me a note and share your story.
