In this episode # 79,

, I talk a little bit about Easter When I was a kid. Easter
is a holiday for the children. When I was a kid, one of the 1st
signs of spring was Easter. One of the 1st signs of Easter was the
fact that we were able to go out and get some dress close to where for Easter
Sunday.

I talk about Mama not remembering those times. The times when
we were kids and we went out my front yard running colored eggs for Easter, the
times where we all got candy for Easter Mama doesn’t remember any of that.

One of the other things that really stick out is the fact
that Easter is a Christianity holiday. It’s a holiday where Christians
celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

It used to be that whenever I wanted to know anything about
the Bible or the church. I could go to Mama and say, Mama, what does this mean,
what does that mean? And usually Mama knew right off the top of her head what
things were. But with this devastating disease called, dementia, Mama can no
longer do that. Mama no longer remembers the holidays and things of that sort.

I literally had to look up on the web, the true meaning of
Easter. But anytime we look up anything like that giving with religion on the
web. We always look at our King James version of the Bible. To make sure the
web says exactly what the Bible says. In years past, all would’ve had to done
would’ve been gone to Mama.

This dementia has taken all of mamas memories of not just the
Easter holiday, but all of the holidays. Mama no longer remembers any holiday
of the year she doesn’t remember doing anything that we did as kids she doesn’t
remember anything much about anything. Dementia has turned my mother back into
a child. I seen on Facebook. The other day a picture of 2 people holding onto a
child below that picture was 2 people holding on to an older person and that
made perfect sense, because that’s exactly what dementia does. When your kid
you got mommy’s fingers in one hand daddy’s fingers in the other hand, trying
to walk. As time goes on, we get older our parents get older and sometimes they
get dementia and when that happens, they no longer have your hands, but you
have their hands.
