Mom’s First Anniversary Without Dad

I called Mom tonight to make sure she was doing OK today … her first wedding anniversary since Dad’s passing. She still thinks about Dad a lot of course, but for some reason she didn’t connect that today was their anniversary.

I have to say that I’ve been inspired by Mom’s devotion to Dad during the course of his Alzheimer’s disease, especially over the last few years. She has really lived her wedding vows … for better or for worse, in sickness and in health.

I’m glad she’s doing well; she’s doing much better than I would have expected considering what she’s been through.
