World Alzheimer's Day

Today is Alzheimer's Awareness Day. People all over the world wore purple today in an effort to bring awareness of this terrible disease. We did our part by wearing the T-shirt we received from the Memory Walk last week. (pictured at right). We wore it loudly and proudly.

Everything went well yesterday with Courtney and Brandon. I breathed alot easier when Courtney walked in the door from her night out, but still had to wait up for Brandon who got in at 12:15 a.m.

Friday night went well with our visit from our Pastor, Father Ralph. He was running late between appointments, but he still took the time to spend about 1/2 hour with us. The kids were very comfortable with him and found much enjoyment in his stories. We promised to have him back one night, when the kids and I could spend some time talking with him (Courtney plans on making her famous Monkey Bread for him). The night ended with a beautiful prayer with Mike.
