In this episode # 79,
, I talk a little bit about Easter When I was a kid. Easter is a holiday for the children. When I was a kid, one of the 1st signs of spring was Easter. One of the 1st signs of Easter was the fact that we were able to go out and get some dress close to where for Easter Sunday.
I talk about Mama not remembering those times. The times when we were kids and we went out my front yard running colored eggs for Easter, the times where we all got candy for Easter Mama doesn’t remember any of that.
One of the other things that really stick out is the fact that Easter is a Christianity holiday. It’s a holiday where Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
It used to be that whenever I wanted to know anything about the Bible or the church. I could go to Mama and say, Mama, what does this mean, what does that mean? And usually Mama knew right off the top of her head what things were. But with this devastating disease called, dementia, Mama can no longer do that. Mama no longer remembers the holidays and things of that sort.
I literally had to look up on the web, the true meaning of Easter. But anytime we look up anything like that giving with religion on the web. We always look at our King James version of the Bible. To make sure the web says exactly what the Bible says. In years past, all would’ve had to done would’ve been gone to Mama.
This dementia has taken all of mamas memories of not just the Easter holiday, but all of the holidays. Mama no longer remembers any holiday of the year she doesn’t remember doing anything that we did as kids she doesn’t remember anything much about anything. Dementia has turned my mother back into a child. I seen on Facebook. The other day a picture of 2 people holding onto a child below that picture was 2 people holding on to an older person and that made perfect sense, because that’s exactly what dementia does. When your kid you got mommy’s fingers in one hand daddy’s fingers in the other hand, trying to walk. As time goes on, we get older our parents get older and sometimes they get dementia and when that happens, they no longer have your hands, but you have their hands.
