For a very brief window of time, it seemed something Mom had lost had been restored. Mom always loved reading books. I thought Alzheimer’s had stolen my mother’s ability to read.
Imagine my delight when she picked up a devotional book, paged through it, then read from its pages for about 30 minutes. Unbelievable. I’m so grateful. It hasn’t happened again since then, but it was sweet in the moment that it happened.
