Day 8: Counting my blessings

I would like to dedicate today’s blog to my mother-in law, Lora Altschuler, who is living with Alzheimer’s Disease. She has had this disease for several years and seems like she is at a peaceful stage. I am also dedicating this blog to my amazing sister-in-law (Sis), Lynne Schofield, and my loving husband Alan. They are an incredible team taking care of her every need, working with a facility to make her life as good as possible. I love you Lynne, for many things, but your dedication, love and tending to every need of your Mom is an inspiration.  Alan, you take care of things for your Mom that only you have the knowledge and ability to do. Alan, you are my rock in life.  You have taught me how to be a better person, and for that I love you dearly.
I am safely in Phoenix and will peddle out tomorrow for Apache Junction, Arizona.
To all reading this blog, I am humbled by your prayers and messages, each of which I cherish now and forever.

  4. Hi Aunt Rona! The Reeds are all thinking about you and your amazing journey. This blog was really sweet…made me tear up a bit to know I have such a strong woman to look up to in a mother, and an even feistier one as a grandmother (Nana) to still be hanging in there through everything she’s been through. I hope you are taking it all in and I can’t wait to pick your brain for stories when you get back. We love you!
    <3, Rebecca
