Can I tell you, it was Wonderful!
My precious dad, who has Alzheimers could not believe that "ALL" those kiddos' belonged to him.
Said, he had no idea that he had that many grandchildren!! Of course, he probably made that statement at least a dozen times or more. He even thought that Sam and my two sister-in-loves where his grandchildren!! How sweet!
Our Sunday School lesson was about caring for the elderly....Out of Love and Respect, this should be something we do with NO questions asked. Families are suppose to take care of their aging parents and by doing so, it allows the church to care for the aging widows. This is biblical.
I will be the first to admit, that I allow myself to become frustrated...(sometimes on a daily basis) because my dad can no longer understand anything that you are trying to tell him. Seems that every single day, I have to tell him the very same thing over and over, and usually it's the same thing that I told him every day for the past month... I know that several of you know exactly what I'm talking about.
I have to wonder though....how many times did my mom and dad feel like beating their heads up against a wall, because they had to tell me things over and over again, when I was little. This is
the same thing...my dad is like a child again, and we have to keep telling him things over and over again.
I love this man and I will do all that I can to make his life comfortable for him.... It is very trying at times....but I promise myself that I am going to try, even harder, to be a more patient daughter.
God Bless Him...
