SHE RECOGNIZED ME!

I am linking to Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent.  Jenny’s prompt this week is “Has it really been a decade”.

HELLO DEAR

“Hello dear”. 

I signed with relief.  She recognized me today. 

“Look at that pretty Robin in the courtyard.”

I turned my head.  “That bird feeder on your window attracted him.”

“You know, my daughter gave me that feeder.”

I looked into her eyes, “Mom, it’s me, Layne, your daughter.”

“I know, and where is your father?”

“Mom, remember?  Dad died.”

“Of course dear, just last week.”

“Mom, it’s been a decade.”

“Has it really been a decade?”

Nurse Sharon came in with medications.

“Hello dear,” my Mother greeted Sharon.

I sadly kissed the top of her head  and went outside to refill the bird feeder.  laurie

Excellent depiction of a sad situation shared by far too many.

Well done!

PS. Your link on the Centus is to the Centus and not to your blog. That's why no one has visited. I had to type your website address in to my browser to get here.

I loved this. Unfortunately, I see this a lot when I visit my mom at the nursing home. Luckily my mom still remembers me but there are a lot of people there who don't remember one moment from the next which is very sad.

Beautifully sad. I've been there- first my mom and now my mom-in-law...

Laurie, this could definitely happen to me. While we were at the beach, I kept calling my sons the wrong names. A very timely Centus!

Oh Laurie.

I am so afraid of this disease. My father is in the early stages and it just scares me...

so sad...

...so touching...

...so well written!

Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
