Sending A Little Sunshine To A Heart In San Francisco

Sunflower Daydreams

I stumble across blogs like most people who read them. By taking a moment to follow a link or a comment, I sometimes end up in place I would hate to have missed.

Guilty With An Explanation is one of those places. I can’t remember how I got there, but I always look forward to reading posts written by the woman I’ve come to know as ‘Heart In San Francisco.’

There’s so much to read about in Susan’s life and she shares it with humor and empathy for others despite the sad role she is in with her husband Flip. His early onset Alzheimer’s and her search for healthcare solutions highlights what is missing for people in his condition.

Although she writes about Flip and his changing needs, her blog is not just about Alzheimer’s and I always leave with something to consider.

Susan writes so beautifully that I often feel as if I am there with her silently witnessing the moments of her life. Her post today had me sitting in the car with her watching from the front seat as she tried to elicit a smile from the man in the toll booth.

I’m sending her a few sunflower photos to say I see her even if the man in the toll booth has become immune to the smiling face of a friendly stranger.

  1. What a great blog post. It’s so true. I come across blogs and sometimes I’m not sure how I got there. I happened upon your blog through today’s “shine your light” post on Shutter Sisters. I’ll be sure to check out Susan’s blog too. At 80 years old, my mom has Alzheimer’s and I know what a toll it takes on our family. I can’t imagine having to go through this with a loved one at a much younger age. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I’ve enjoyed each blog you’ve linked, this one is no exception. I appreciate your response as well.

    Love the lightbox! It’s great to be married to a thoughtful, creative handyman.
