100Today, my little blog hit a huge milestone – 100 followers!!

Thank you so much to everyone who stops by and a special thanks to my followers!

I started The Long and Winding Road in February, 2012. My intention was to create a place where people could come for ALZ information and support, and just to know that they weren’t alone in what they were feeling or experiencing. I had learned so much over the years, and it only made sense to share that knowledge in the hope of making the life of another family just a tiny bit easier.

The blog has also served as a form of (FREE!!) therapy for me… a way to make some semblance of order out of the seemingly uncontrollable chaos that ALZ brings with it. As time went on, I began to realize that I treasured having so many memories – good and bad – documented. Sometimes when I read old entries, I honestly feel as though I’m reading about someone else… that can’t be my mom… or my life!

But, it was, and it is. And, if there’s one way I can honor my mom and keep her memory alive, it’s to continue to fight the battle, educate the masses, and support families living with the disease right now. Hmmm, it seems especially fitting that the blog would hit the 100 follower milestone the week of Mother’s Day… Love you Mom!!
