Lost...


To some, this word means fear, frustration and anxiety.


To others it is a sense of liberation and embarking on a new adventure.


Yet to others, it is a demanding, ongoing part of life...


When a person is moving through the stages of Alzheimer's,


becomes part of the daily experience. It's difficult for the person enduring the mental and physical changes


AND...


For the care partner(s) who are navigating an unknown lane along what seems like a completely untraveled country road.


BUT...


What if LOST, instead, meant a way of being found?


What if the dark and fearful thoughts of measured words and actions were altered and you found a brighter place where it was perfectly ok to take a wrong turn and end up...


...standing in a wide open field, where there were only possibilities on how to deal with each untraveled moment, because there is no "right" way...


...looking out over a ribbon of hills and valleys, knowing that each one is a challenge that will come and go, and everyone WILL get through it...


...feeling a refreshing breeze on your cheeks and the sweet heat of the sun on your face when life feels unwelcoming... but you know that moments of gratitude can be found... even if you REALLY need dig DEEP for them...


Anyone who is a care partner knows the many faces of LOST,


BUT...


Once you're on that unknown road...there you are with only the ability to move forward onto the next hill, curve or valley...


AND...


No two maps will take you the exact same way...


Where will you find a touch of beauty in being LOST right alongside your loved one?


No one is ever traveling alone, but always together...


In this way, there is beauty in being lost.
