My friend’s father has been battling early onset Alzheimer’s and I am always encouraged and spurred on by her strength in supporting her family through it. I know that this kind of strength and peace can only come from a deep and intimate relationship with a sovereign and compassionate God. I have been wanting to make her a card to let her know I think about and pray for her family and was spurred on by Carolyn King’s Alzheimer’s Heart to Heart Blog Candy in honor of World Alzheimer’s Day (9/21) and the memory of her grandmother who also had Alzheimer’s.
I used Kristina Werner’s Color Inspiration #13 (KWCI#13) for the colors. I just LOVE all those colors together! I also used PaperTrey Ink’s “Flower Frenzy” and “Out on a Limb Sentiments” sets. I thought the sentiment was very appropriate: “To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world – Josephine Billings”.
I hope she may be encouraged and know that I am praying for her!
I plan to make another one to send to the staff at Artman Home, where Carolyn King’s grandmother lived the last few years of her life:
To the Staff at the Artman Home

Do you know someone affected with Alzheimer’s or someone caring for someone with Alzheimer’s? Make a card to encourage them and let them know you are thinking of them today! If you don’t know anyone, you can also make a card and send it to the above address to encourage the staff there.
