The simple things in life..Poem

The early morning mist
A bird in the sky
A leaf on the ground,
Laughter all around

Simple acts of gratitude
A ‘Thank you’ and a ‘Please’
Don’t cost in terms of finance
Only the time it takes to speak

Simple acts of kindness
A hug or smiley face
Cost nothing more than time itself
Living life at a slower pace…

When time is unknown
And days become more precious
Life takes on a new meaning…..

It’s time to forget life’s stresses………

Sat in my chair watching autumn turn into winter.....one of life's simple pleasures..

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.
