Dorothy’s Dementia

Happy Good Friday!   I can remember when we were little the excitement about Church Service on Friday – and again on Sunday – actually the entire Holy Week leading up to Easter.   I love Small Town USA- I grew up in an amazing time and town.  I can remember when we were real little- Mom would make my brothers new shirts and me a new dress every Easter– she did this for a few years.  There was always a smile on every ones faces- how could it not – with all that candy (-;  

  When I went to get mom last Friday- there was a card on her dresser she had addressed in her shaky hand writing –

 To: Cheryl 

 From: Mom 

 I love you.  

  I was touched –  what a sweet card to get from mom.  (Usually- it’s the kids, that give a card a handmade card – to their parents).  I opened it up and saw that she had gently glued a bunny rabbit along with his Easter Basket filled with eggs – just right-  to the front of the card  She had colored the eggs and bunny- it was really cute.  When I opened the card- I found a verse cut out and glued- just so- on the inside.  It simply read                          “ Easter is the only time it’s okay to put all your eggs in one basket.”  

Nothing else was written or glued on the inside.    

This simple act of kindness from my mom brought tears streaming down my face- along with a huge smile and a little push to my heart to make it bigger.  

I took a moment and imagined her sitting in the art class and making this. It was made with love and you could tell that she took her time to do a good job.  

She doesn’t remember making it or writing on the envelope- but I’ll remember it for a long, long time.

Happy Easter Everyone,

Peace & Love,

Cheryl Doreen
