Mom’s Birds

on August 29, 2012

One of the things I do is make sure that both our hummingbird feeders are full.. It’s a very important part of the day around this house… You are always hearing throughout the day, sounds of hummingbird wings, as they fly around the backyard. They are so beautiful and peaceful. Mother loves to sit out on the patio and watch them fly around her and go to the feeders to drink..

I never really did the “hummingbird” thing, until last year, when mother moved into our home.. Her Alzheimer’s, and other health issues, were too much for her to live alone anymore.. I take care of her during the week now, with my sister caring for her on the weekends..

Mother is fascinated by outside objects, the weather, politics, and loves her Lord.. Alzheimer’s, robs a person of memories, relationships, activities, life-long schedules and habits, plus so much more.. It is extremely painful to watch daily.. I have become her memory and her mother. God has given me patience, beyond words, and I will never be the same after going thru this.. It has given so much more compassion for people and for caregivers around the world..

I think Mom is the “Hummingbird Whisperer”.
