Precious Moments


These are difficult times for so many of you, and add in Covid — just magnifies the challenges we all face. I am sending out virtual hugs to each of you, praying for peace and comfort — surround you all with positivity.

This picture was taken this morning, my daughter offering a morning hug to my sweet Momma.

A wonderful wonderful hug for Momma, for sure!

Lovely photo. Not heard anything from you for a while. Hope everything ok and that you are still managing trips xx

Hey there --- I have been a bit overwhelmed -- Mom just needs 100% care at this point ... my days seem to melt into one another; life is so different for us. I am having to help with mom with everything now --- shes coughing ALOT -- swallowing is so difficult. It seems that I get things in order, and another change brings on another challenge. I have decided to add more caretakers to keep my sanity --- deep breathing for me. xx

Lovely photo!hugs back. Having a real hard time as deteriorating fast physically. Very difficult to walk. House move pending and not able help with anything.Jayne xx

Awww Jayne ---- Im sorry your'e having a hard time. This horrible disease has just taken residence in our lives -- hate it hate it hate it! Mom is no longer walking, and I am now having to take care of her 100% --- We just manage one day at a time. ((hugs)) xx

That’s all you can do until they find a cure. Not in my time so I hope that helping with the research at Cambridge will help someone else avoid this disease’s horrors.Jaynexx

Love this. You truly are blessed.

I'm fine most of the time, just lucky I've no health issues.

Started back this week to my exercise zoom classes after missing them for 6 wks. 😱 Too much home baking during lockdown, so exercise had to recommence.😅

Feeling a bit down today as it would have been our 47th wedding anniversary, just sorry he isn't here with me to share it, but know he is in a better place.

I hope you keep sharing lovely photos of your beautiful mum, she is amazing and so are you. You are both lucky to have each other.

Lots of love and hugs (( )) Nanny857xx

Wonderful post!!! Thanks for sharing, brightened my morning. Good to hear from you!!

Oh thank you! I captured this moment --- it really touched my heart. Momma loves her grand babies -- the little things can make such an impact. Hope you're doing well! xx

It's great to see the smiling faces.

Hi Pat! WE've had some challenging days, but we have to smile vs. cry -- we have much to be thankful for. xx

So lovely!! I get to see my sister today for the first time in nearly 5 months..The Long Term Care facility are starting to allow families to take their loved ones out for in home visits...I hope to be able to give her the biggest hug!!! Your mom looks so happy!!

I am so happy to hear that you get to go see your Sister! My husband was able to his Dad for the first time since March 23rd -- he has really declined, so very sad. We are hugging daily, and keeping Momma happy, even under the circumstances that we face daily. ((hugs))

It was a shock for me to see how my sister has deteriorated during this 'lockdown' ...she is 'still in there' but hardly able to communicate more than 'yes and no' answers...but lovely to be able to hug her!! Hope your mom is doing OK?

A beautiful photograph and I am sending a hug right back to you xx

Lovely picture.

Thank you! I love this particular filter ... makes me want to enlarge and frame it! My daughter is her first granddaughter —- they have a special bond. Momma used to carry her to the car, when we would get ready to leave, after our visits. At one point I said, “Momma she is getting to big for you to carry” Mom replied, “I will carry her until I can’t anymore” ... my daughters legs were so long, it looked ridiculous... but there she went carrying her out the door.

Oh ... if we could rewind time sometimes.

You capture these moments so well. I was wondering how you were doing as you hadn't posted for a while. Glad to hear you're getting more help as you need to look after yourself as well but sorry to hear things are getting tougher. Hugs to you & your Mum. xxx

I was surprised as well - time just slipped away this month! She’s leaning so much! Feels like dead weight most times - I truly do not know what I would do if I didn’t have this stand assist - honestly, I don’t know if I could do it otherwise - it has truly been the answer. If she loses any upper body strength, it will be a major problem. I’m sure It is inevitable.

She has a good appetite. Her voice is gone, but once in awhile she blindsides me with full sentences and it takes me to my knees emotionally —- I miss her ... and she’s right here. Managing each day the best we can, and continue to search for those rays of sunshine! I hope you are doing well!!! ((Hugs))

Your uplifting spirt is a joy. What a sweet story about your daughters special bond with your Mom. We will be celebrating our 50th anniversary this weekend-no party but our kids and grandkids have a plan to celebrate at home. We are looking forward to their surprise. My husband has PSP for 5 years now and he kept saying for the past 12 months I hope I am here to celebrate our 50th-odds are in our favor that we will be together for this milestone anniversary.

HI Kim,,

Thank God you have another picture of moms prescious smile. Sorry to hear mom is declining, I can see the changes in my balance and I am falling more frequently.just during this pandemic time .I will continue to keep you and mom in my prayers l
