I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
To Lift Our Spirits--OT
Iris, that was absolutely incredible! I loved the video and its wonderful message. It brought tears of joy to my eyes. Thanks for sharing it. We need more like that to brighten our spirits as we continue to do battle each day.
God bless, Paul
A beautiful video about hummingbirds, bumblebees and butterflies--to lift our spirits.
Apparently it was made to focus on the technology, but it still shows how marvelous nature is. This is just for enjoyment. It has nothing to do with dementia. Larry posted it on the Spouse/Partner board.
Iris, an absolutely amazing and breathtaking video! I loved it!
In the gardens that surround my home, the butterflies and hummingbirds feast on the flowers and I love watching them. Of course, they pale in comparison to this video. Nonetheless they are still enjoyable to watch from my patio.
Thanks for posting this. I hope everyone takes the time to watch it. They will be blessed!
God Bless, Paul
Sweet of you to share with us. Many thanks!
The Hug of the Century--another lion video--get your hankie out!
This was shared in my computer class. Scroll down and click Play. Disregard everything else on that site.
Iris, another incredible video. I love it as it warmed my heart! Thanks so much for posting this precious video as well as the original one.
Merry Christmas to my board mates!

AMAZING Christmas Flash Mob at Mall by Journey of Faith - GodTube
Jo C posted "Winter Verse for My Friends" on the Spouse/Partner board.
We can all use a smile and this one makes me smile . . . .
"I made myself a snowball
as perfect as could be,
I thought I'd keep it as a pet
and let it sleep with me
I made it some pajamas
and a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away
but first it wet the bed!"
Iris, I loved the Amazing Christmas Flash Mob at the Mall by Journey of Faith. It was absolutely incredible! Thanks so much for posting it for all to enjoy.
I'm glad you enjoyed the flash mob, Paul. I hope you enjoy the little poem, too.
Iris, the video was incredible and it made my day. thanks for posting things that brighten our spirits and bring us joy!
This is a very old thread put on the Message Board back on December of 2013 and it was positive and uplifting; BUT know what?
It is well worthwhile setting it into place again as a gift to all of us . . . . .
Can we find more?
I'll have to do a bit of looking.
Knowing Iris is well and at peace would uplift my spirits.
Certainly someone has communicated with her? People living alone - when there is no news I feel concerned for someone to knock on the door and check.
Iris, thinking of you every day.
I'm enjoying this thread again. And yes, it is lifting my spirits!
Does anyone have something uplifting to share? This thread is to lift OUR spirits!
I can't tell you how many times I've watched that Christian the Lion video and can never get enough! A good flashmob is always uplifting! Ok, the video of that amazing little dog is to much! How cute! My shih Tzu knows one good trick! LOL
I love Meghan's Trainor's voice and this song brings tears to my eyes:
We were walking on moonlight And you pulled me close Split second and you disappeared And then I was all alone
I woke up in tears With you by my side A breath of relief And I realized No, we're not promised tomorrow
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you And I'm gonna hold you like I'm saying goodbye Wherever we're standing I won't take you for granted 'Cause we'll never know when, when we'll run out of time
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Wishing everyone a great day!
A funny Thanksgiving poem
Jo C. posted a cute poem on the Younger Onset board, and I thought everyone could use a chuckle.

Bela on the Caregiver's board posted this rendition of
Auld Lang Syne by Susan Boyle. There may follow
her first audition on Britain's Got Talent.
I never tire of watching her performance,
which always lifts my spirits.
Happy New Year 2016, everyone!
Alz+, this is for you! Here are two things you love: smiles and dogs!
Here are some beautiful plants and flowers.
Do you like ballet? Here is a woman and her dog and their stunning dance.
I saw a brief segment on the news tonight about this veteran and how his service dog treated his severe ptsd after his Iraq war injuries. The beginning is about his war injuries, and then his severe ptsd, then the ending is about how the dog saved him and brought him back to functioning.

Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan returned from war with a severe case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. But thanks to a Service Dog named Tuesday, Luis has turned his life around...
Look at the post of December 19, 2014 if you want to see the Christmas Flash Mob.

A member on the Spouse/Partner board posted how watching fish swimming in an aquarium can be soothing. In this time of Coronavirus related restrictions, we may be in need of more soothing. The Aquarium of the Pacific has webcams of penguins, sharks, jellyfish and other marine animals for viewing. There are additional educational materials and links to their Youtube videos for more animals.

This little girl encouraged me so much.
