Those of us who have Lewy Body Dementia are living with a death sentence. But, truly, everyone knows they are going to die, someday. So, the question really is, what IS important?
People talk about "Bucket Lists". But experiences, like money, mean nothing eternity. However, how you treat the ones you love, the things you taught your children, grandchildren, the moral truths you leave them, IS the thing of value you leave behind.
I have made numerous mistakes, committed too many Sins to count, and have hurt the feelings of too many people I love and respect. My goal for the remainder of the days God gives me is to leave a lasting memory that encourages those who know me to live a moral, God honoring life.
Just because I have failed in the past does not mean I have to continue to fail. And no trip to somewhere will not leave a lasting impression of God's love on the hearts of those I love. Yes, I want to see my friends and family, everything I can!! And truthfully, I do not see them enough! But going to see something or do something, when I can go see a friend or relative, is out of the question. I will fill my bucket with the love of good friends and family.
During my recent downturn, I have seen more clearly, how I must spend the remainder of my life. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
