Memories are the flowers, in the garden of the mind.
I have rewritten this post so many times the screen should have eraser marks all over it. I wanted to let everyone know that my newest Alzheimer’s card has just gotten back from the printers. And how much I love it, and how hopeful I am that it will help raise funds that will be donated to the BC Alzheimer’s Society. And that somehow with those funds, we can help them find a cure for this disease, no matter where we live.
But each time I started to write this post, it got dark. Gloomy, sad, it wasn’t upbeat, it wasn’t happy, and hopeful, and I didn’t like that.
This card is about honoring those who have had, or are fighting Alzheimer’s disease, it says so right on the back of the card.
It’s also about honoring my Mother in Law Rose, who passed away from the disease this spring. All profits go to the Alzheimer’s Society.
And in my small way, it’s what I can do, with the ability that I have, to create, and design using my photos. It’s not much, but it gives me the chance to keep a memory alive.
And I can certainly hope they find a cure soon for this horrible disease.
