May 12, 2014: Mom loved to dance. Even now, when she can barely walk, she and I do our own Alzheimer’s version of a two step. Tomorrow I will show her this video – it’s just the kind of thing she would find funny.
Although most of her sense of humour has disappeared along with much of the rest of her, I can sometimes coax a smile or the hint of a laugh from somewhere deep inside. I hope the video will elicit a smile on her face, even a small one. If it doesn’t, it’s okay. Because I know it will produce joy in her heart.
