Loving her every stitch of the way!
Everyday matters. This is my mother. She is eighty one years old. She suffers from dementia and requires 24/7 care. In addition to giving her that care, everyday I strive to give her the best quality of life possible. In her working years she was a self employed seamstress. Last year, I embarked on a sewing journey in order keep her mind engaged. She loves to watch me sew and from time to time I give her simple tasks to work on. Recently, I decided I was going to bring up one of my sewing machines and see if she wanted to set out in a new venture of machine stitch embroidery. To my surprise not only was she up to the task, but she is actually re-learning a lot of her old sewing skills. I am so blown away with how the mind works. She won’t remember that she did this today, but tomorrow she will have a better day because she did. Loving her every stitch of the way!
