Life changes when we least expect

This is a difficult post to write. Since my husband has been recently diagnosed with dementia our life has changed. We will learn and adapt as we go but some major changes will have to be made.

Our home is one that requires us both to be able to help with its maintenance. It is really too much for me to manage on my own. It is time to move forward and find the right environment for both of us. This will be heart wrenching and particularly hard on my husband but we need to do it now and get settled for the future.

My aunt ( who was really quirky) always said that if you do all the things you CAN do at the moment then you can stop worrying. This is my plan. We will be taking one day at a time. There are still some medical issues to be resolved and the virus hasn’t helped getting those done but we will get there. God is with us.

There have been lots of ups and downs in our life together. This is just another down to get through and look forward to the next up. On the 9th of June we will have been married 58 years. A wonderful journey.

  1. My prayers are with you daily. It’s impacted my family. I’m sorry for the new changes you’re navigating. We never know what life will hand indeed. 🙏🏻💚♥️


  2. My father went through the same.
    I know how hard it must be for you because I watched my mother…
    Everyone is affected by this season… this long Winter of life.
    But, I know that you are aware as anyone else, that this is another chapter in “Life”, and it still has many precious moments, that can brighten up, even the darkest of corners.
    We can always find His Brilliant and Glorious Light, through the darkest part of any night.
    I pray that you have the assurance, and HIS ‘Peace’, that goes beyond our understanding”. And lays a firm foundation… an underlying calm, and the ‘knowing’, that all is, and forever shall be…”Well”. 😇


  3. I am so sorry to hear this. Your home is beautiful and I love the setting. No denying the upkeep is way beyond your abilities right now. I hope you can find something by the water. Prayers continue, my friend.
