This is not a race to see who can finish first.
Just like the disease of Alzheimer’s and related dementias, some of us will take longer than others to complete this Memory Walk.
We will find parts of the trail that are rough, and some where it is smooth; where the trail twists and turns, and some where it is straight.
We will keep our heads held high.
Sometimes we may lean on others for help.
We will accept that just when we think we have a nice rhythm going, something is liable to change our plans.
We may take a rest.
We will learn to cope however we can. This may be all we can do, for now.
But we will do the best we can to keep moving forward.
