Finding The Humor Amidst The Sorrow
As most of you know my Mom suffers from Alzheimer's Disease. I have written several posts about it which you can find here and here. With each day comes new challenges, as well as new sorrows. My sister called me this past weekend and told me she was going to tell me about a conversation she had with my Mama, but she didn't want it to upset me. "Oh, no," I thought, "what is it now?" She then proceeded to relay the conversation that took place. Instead of crying over it I am going to try to find the humor.
Mama: "Betsy, can I ask you something?"
Betsy: "Sure, Mama."
Mama: "I'm not really married to that man named Jim am I?" (Jim is my Dad)
Betsy: "Why, yes, you are, Mama. Why do you ask?"
Mama: " I don't think I am, because I never would have married a man as grouchy as he is."
Oh my goodness, sometimes you just have to find the humor or you would start weeping and never be able to stop.
