Normally I answer the question first, then visit the other participants. Today I did the reverse and I was so moved by the other wishes. There is such strength in sharing and supporting the wishes of others. Poetry, photos and wonderful wishes - what a blessed mixture.
I want to remember my life - my children, husband, parents and extended family. All the little memories that make up our lives form a tapestry we can look back at and rejoice in. I too fear alzheimers - the great robber of dignity and life.
Along with remembering though, I want to celebrate all that I am and all that I was. I need to keep the connection with all those who have already left. Their memories are always with me.
You too can support the wishes of others.
As Jamie says:
"Answer the wish prompt above on your blog and then add a direct link to your post in the box below. Support wishes by visiting other participants, leaving a comment saying “As (insert name) wishes for her/himself, so I wish for her/him also.” It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."
