It has been 18 months since my Mother's passing and all of us still miss her. But we are moving forward and have left much of the painful memories behind. I found a little bottle of her perfume still in our bathroom closet where I put it before she went to the nursing home. Lately I've been wearing it. The fragrance makes me feel very close to her. I don't think I could have worn it last year, but time is healing the wounds left by Alzheimer's and I am grateful.
