Happy Father’s Day

Please take a moment to read my friend Serena’s lovely Father’s Day tribute to her dad as he selflessly cares for her mom who has Alzheimer’s. You can follow the links to check out her dad’s blog, as well and help her family, if you can…Thanks!

Serena Joy Sinclair

My family and I went to church this morning and I heard something that’s been sticking with me in the sermon. One of my best friends, who I have been friends with since I actually have memories of having friends, and who I could not even begin to imagine what my life would be like without her, was in a serious car accident. She has made great improvements and has finally been moved from the ICU. Our pastor said he was touched by the outpouring of love for her, and that we should treat every person as if they were her sibling, because every person deserves that much love.

  1. Such a great character trait, I am always happy to hear this of spouses. My Mom was so patient in figuring out what little bites my Dad liked and didn’t; when he had cancer and no appetite. He died at home on the floor in her arms. He had been shouting in joy watching a basketball game. Mom ran and called the squad and left the door open in January, telling them to hurry!

    1. Oh, my goodness, that is tough! This young lady, Serena, is such a talented writer and helps out her dad in caring for her mom when she can. They are trying to raise funds to build an accessible shower for her mom. Wishing there was more I could do!

      1. Sometimes there is an agency which deals with those who need assistance with accommodations, Diane. I really liked Jackie’s post you completed there. Your dogs and interesting new details made me happy you have a big, happy family! I left a comment there for both you and Jackie!

      2. Her dad is selling a CD track from his band for 99 cents so I’m buying that. They just want to build an accessible shower for her mom.

      5. It needs to hit somebody’s page/ Fb page that has a connection to Alzheimer’s. Somebody who is passionate about it. Or a human interest site. What about littlethings.com or suspendedcoffees.com? They both run heartwarming stories about people and families. This is a love story…

      6. I had to check those out, didn’t know them. I liked them both. Should I suggest the sites to Serena, do you think?

      7. That’s a great idea. Since she’s a writer, she could probably email them a story. I’d bet if it’s written as a love story about taking care of his wife, sort of like The Notebook movie, somebody will pick it up. Also, there’s a blog called The Kindness Blog that runs stories on compassion/ kindness etc. They supposedly have a wide audience as well.

      8. I’d say the more she can spread the story, the better. Alzheimer’s touches a lot of people… Someone will notice the beauty of this story.

  8. Diane, I am not sure why I said Jackie, unless the phone morphed Serena’s name? Would you mind switching or editing Jackie’s name? Thanks!

    1. No, I think it was right. I think you also talked about my dogs and that was the interview Jackie did on her post. We were talking about two different posts in that one comment… ❀
