Alzheimer's sucks

One of the greatest gifts and the greatest challenges in my life is my mom.  My mom was a great mom in almost every way.  We had our differences as every 2 females that ever existed in the same home did, but overall we entered my adulthood with a great relationship.  As my babies were born, she cared for them and was their shining star.  And the same time the life that was in her was changing.  Somewhere between 59 and 60 we realized she had Alzheimer's disease.  And now I look back at these pictures with a flood of gratitude and a torrent of sadness.  Today my mom requires help to walk, cannot carry on an intelligible conversation and has lost the memory of who I am most days. Pictures are priceless...
