Dbl Meaning; “All I want for Christmas…”

Below is Harry Urban’s blog entry of 29 November, 2015 and 2017.


All I want for Christmas is you
has a double meaning when you are living with dementia.

When I say that,
I mean that I want to remember you and your name at Christmas.

We know things will change and the day will come when I forget you,
… not the love we shared but the person I see.

At times it is so hard to handle the things I know
because they will come true
and there is nothing I can do to prevent it.

My faith and the knowledge I am doing the right thing will help me
The day will come when I no longer need to carry this weight
and I will be forever in peace.

2017 Nov 29:  It was cold and crisp, but I … sit outside on my bench and give thanks.
… no pretending everything is ok,
just me opening my soul and asking for guidance.
… my fears come pouring out
… and ways to adapt and face them come flooding in
… I always believed in a higher power … It will be there to sooth my fears and help to guide my life.
