Greeting the dawn.

I sat on my porch this morning and watched the sun slowly bleed light into the night sky. The birds were singing their anthems and a gentle warm breeze was caressing me. The air smelled as fresh and new as it must have been on the day The Lord created it. This used to be my favorite time. New Day! What can I do? Where can I go? What could I see? It was like Christmas morning for a child.

One more thing this darn* disease has stolen from me. I feel only dread of when my DW wakes up, and fear that she won't. I'll do nothing today but fight her illness every minute, every second. I'll think no thought that isn't "What does she need now?"

  If I haven't mentioned it--->  I HATE THIS DISEASE!!!

Markus, I'm happy you were able to enjoy the dawn. Your description was absolutely beautiful and made me happy.

I think we all truly hate this disease. I know I do with all my might!

This disease robs and destroys. It is heartbreaking.

When I read the 1st paragraph of greeting the dawn, I could feel the beauty of your experience. Your words are powerful and the imagery is palpable. Your words brought me joy.

Then, just like real life, along came Alzheimer's to damper the beauty.
