This is a very special Wednesday Words for me today. This Muddy Boot Dreams card is a idea that took almost a year to germinate. The seed first showed up as a idea, but it was too late to get a good shot of the Forget-me-nots and I had to wait until this summer. Granted these are Chinese Forget-me-nots, but I don't think that anyone is worried about that. The sentiment reads "Memories, are the flowers in the garden of the mind". Forget-me-nots are the official flower of the Alzheimer's society, and the flower is a good representation. The disease robs victims of their memories, rendering their families virtual strangers. There are over 70,000 people in BC alone, living with this disease. My Mother in Law, Rose is one of them. She has fought this disease for over 11 years, and has not recognized us for over 10 years. It is a slow, nasty decline, a cure cannot come fast enough. I wanted to do something to help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease, and will donate a portion of the sale of these cards to the society. And I will be donating cards to the hospital gift shop, of Rose's care facility. Rose, you may have forgotten us, but we have not forgotten you.
