A Valentine That Filled My Heart

I want to wish each of you a wonderful Valentines Day.

Many of you reading this are lucky to have that very special someone at your side. To you I say, “Cheers and may you appreciate the many blessings in your life.”

For those of you who have lost the love of your life, or maybe never found one or who may be dealing with dementia and feel your relationships have changed, even changed a lot; to you I say “You are not alone! You are loved and lifted by others just like you. They may not be in your home or even in your community, but they too have experienced loss and love and don’t want you to feel alone. So know deep down you are never alone. There are other people just like you in the world who care about you.

A Beautiful Crafted Card

The Graphic above is a beautiful handmade card I received from one of the many people I have had the honor to meet while building Alzheimer’s Speaks. A person I am lucky enough to call a dear friend.

Truthful Loving Kindness, a woman living with dementia, remembered me on this very special day and it touched my heart deeply. It reminded me that love and respect and acknowledging one another on Valentines Day doesn’t have to be limited to a spouse, a partner or a lover. We can, if we choose, let others in our life know that they matter to us. So thank you Tru for remembering me on Valentines and know you card made a big difference to me and your friendship means even more. May you have a blessed Valentines Day.

So reach out to your friends, extended family, coworkers, neighbors, fellow students… and wish them a Happy Valentines Day. Let them know they matter to you and have made a difference in your life.

And maybe, just maybe they will do the same to others and we can spread a wave of kindness around the world and make every person feel they matter and belong.

Wishing you each a blessed day filled with love – Lori La Bey

Dementia – A Poem By Denise Gleason

Dementia

In my life, many scary things I faced

But, Dementia was the thing that put me in my place

When in Dementia’s presence

You must bow to the one in charge, like a peasant. 

Before you go into its lair put on your armor 

And realize you are only a glorified snake charmer  

Cloning its visions and mood so that you can negotiate your position 

Holding yourself, so that you don’t slip into abyss and forget your original mission. 

Just when you feel like he is about to swallow you up and you begin to taste the bile

You get a brief glympse of a wonderful memory or a positive current moment which makes you smile

The many faces of Eve 

can’t compete with Dementia’s ability to deceive 

When you leave it’s presence

You neither win or lose 

Just remember to wash off the slime and not allow it to cling to you.

Denise Gleason December 2019
