There are touching moments on the journey with loved ones with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia that bring tears to our eyes. This one caught me and touched my heart. As a daughter and a niece, there are no words that succinctly fulfill the gratitude I have for this moment even though my family members are still able to identify me. But knowing that the progression of the disease may come to this moment, my heart fills with the precious and priceless moment that is captured below with a smile.
Even if you aren’t walking the path of memory loss, this viral video reminds us all that we are only here for a short period of time in which to tell our loved ones that we love them, that we are blessed to have them in our lives and to show them how much they mean to us every single day.
It’s never too late to share a special moment with your loved one. Do not delay dearest friends. We only have this present moment and as someone who has loved ones who have passed, it is harder when they are gone. Video tape precious moments with your family members. Take the time to make special memories with them. Be patient, be kind, shine your heartlight and be loving You!
