Today I Start Fresh…Coping with Memory Loss

By Lori La Bey



This is a prayer I wrote.  It can easily be changed to accommodate any religion.  Some days dealing with this disease I have to remind myself I am not in control and it is ok.



My Mother Unresponsive


Today I start fresh

I let go of all and let GOD take over

For I am his Sheppard, Let him direct me

Let him guide and protect me on my journey

For it is GOD’s Devine plan, not mine

I am just a tool in the scheme of things

Let me breathe deep and cleanse my soul

Let me see opportunities as they come before me

Let me react to all situations to maximize GOD’s plan

Let me be humble and forgive myself and others

Let me embrace the future and all the possibilities it holds

In his name I pray Amen
