Although living with someone with severe short term memory loss can at times be trying, there are also moments of pure joy as you watch this same person rediscover the world on a daily basis.
This morning at breakfast, G took a bite of his eggs with smoked salmon, capers, and tomatoes and looked up, eyes sparkling with joy. "This is wonderful" he said, his voice filled with awe at having made a fabulous new discovery. No matter that he has had the same breakfast once a week for the past 36 weeks.
These are the moments to treasure.
