I know two Alzheimer care-givers. A married couple. Caring for her parents. In their home. For four years now. They are remarkable and amazing people. Maybe they try to do too much. To the point of becoming exhausted. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. But they've managed so far. And I know why. They are genuinely in love. With each other. They fall back on each other. For sustenance. Under similar circumstances, many a marriage would have broken up. But this marriage is full of love. That's the difference-maker. Can't say that this situation will go on forever. Because it's a daily test. But if ever there's a marriage that will last, this is the one. Amazing. The power of love. --Jim
