Respect for Life

My mother-in-law was just officially diagnosed with moderate Alzheimer’s.  We knew her memory was declining but to hear the words was numbing.  My husband wondered out loud when would the day come that we would go to see her and she wouldn’t know who we were.  It made me think and be convicted in the reality that we needed to still care for her, whether she knows who we are or not.  Her life still has value.  She has been created in the image and likeness of her creator.  And that fact alone has value.  She has value.

Easy for me to say now as she still recognizes me.  Good opportunity for me to grow.
