it's not heavy it's my lemonade

Tumultuous week for the able minded and able bodied.

What about the most vulnerable among us when disaster strikes?

A snippet or two of news may get stuck in an able minded head but what about seen or heard through MS Dementia or other cognitive filters?

So I decided to give Patti a media break and enjoy a lunch outing on Friday at Helena’s Chocolate Café & Crêperie, “a slice of Europe in downtown Carlisle”.

Watching cherry tree blooms drop and swirl on the breeze outside the windows, we could have been in a snow globe.

Our dessert, a pear almond torte served just 'gently warmed' was out of this world.

As Patti grabbed her lemonade bottle to drink, I asked her if she needed some help?

Smiling she answered, “It’s not heavy, it’s MY lemonade!”

(in my head played, "It's a long, long road
From which there is no return …he's not heavy he's my brother")
