Important Notice!!!

Praise the Lord! After 6 weeks or so of dealing with medical facilities, we are finally back in our own home. David's foot is looking much, much better. There are still a few hurdles to cross, but he'll make it.

Please bear with us as we get adjusted to being home again and get back in the swing of blogging again.

Thank you for continued prayers!!!

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up since YouTube has decided he is unworthy of monetization since his isn't a huge channel, please subscribe to his YouTube channel and watch the videos. That would really make his day! He has to have at least 1000 subscribers and 4,000 minutes of watch time within 30 days in order to be able to keep the monetization option.

Word-High July: Gunita


Please visit here to learn more about this 30-day challenge.


july-4





This word at first glance makes me think of my maiden name - Gunter. Then, it makes me snicker because they are not at all the same.

Grandma & Me at the Wedding, 1984
This word also holds a great deal of fear for me. My Grandma Spence had Alzheimer's. This disease/condition is a memory stealer. As I understand it, it affects one's short-term memory first. This is scary to me because I am having trouble with short-term memory more and more lately. I will be in the middle of a sentence and forget what I am saying.

Long-term memory has always been an issue for me. I have very little in the way of memories of various events in my childhood. There are things that I should remember, but I just don't for whatever reason. I am afraid of the possibility that I also am on the Alzheimer's road. I don't want to forget even more than I have already. I don't want to forget who my husband and children are. I don't want to forget who I am. If I forget who I am, then I have forgotten those that came before me. I don't want to forget.

And I don't want to be forgotten.





I am because they were.
