What do you say about this?….Pat Robertson: Divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer’s is justifiable

Life as a caregiver to a person with Alzheimer’s is tough. Seeing a family member or friend with Alzheimer’s is tough. It’s a journey you can never prepare yourself for and one where things are always changing. It has become my life! I did not ask for this illness to take over my mother, I did not ask to be a caregiver!…at least now! These are supposed to be my years, but God had a different plan for me, one that I’m still trying to figure out. One that I really want to understand, but I have to trust God on this – as it says in Proverbs 3:5; “Lean not on your own understanding, but TRUST in the Lord with all thine heart and in all thy ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.”

Yes Pat, but it is “NOT” death! It’s a hard journey, no doubt about that, but if you love someone, sometimes you have to do the “hard” thing! Here’s the story:
