Catching Christmas - Alzheimer's 19

Catching Christmas

I have read some Christmas books for entire this year. My favorite one is Catching Christmas, published in October 2018. This is a sweet read, small book with the light and humorous conversations. I really like this book and I could not put it down.

The author of this book is Terri Blackstock, New York Times Bestselling Author. Her books have sold over seven million copies worldwide. She graduated from Louisiana University at Monroe. She is a Christian writer.

In Acknowledgments, Blackstock explained how this book inspired her. She was in the waiting room of a hospital for a doctor's appointment, a huge waiting room with with a couple hundred people in that room.

Then she saw a man with the old lady on wheelchair. He checked her in at the desk. During that time, the lady said embarrassing things very loudly and made all of them laugh.

When checked in had done, the man wheeled the lady right next to the author, and she can see that the lady had dementia.

When the man about to leave the lady, he gave a card and told the lady to call him when she'd done. The author talk to the man and he should not leave her, the man said that he just a cab driver.


Terri Blackstock, the author of Catching Christmas

So, this book was inspired by this experience. In this book, there are three characters Finn, a cab driver; Miss Callie, dementia grandmother; and Sidney, granddaughter who takes care her grandmother, Miss Callie.

Terri wrote and pictured about a person with dementia is sweet in the very light problem, seems in the early stage dementia. Emotional feelings came from a cab driver who deals with Callie with all of her forgetfulness.

Even Callie suffers with her disease and dementia, she is a nice and fun lady and always make people chuckles.

Together, they are catching Christmas.

  21. ¡Hola Evi!

    Si que debe ser interesante el libro, aunque triste a la vez. La demencia es lo peor que nos puede pasar, mejo morir que sufrir demencia, porque no es vivir y además damos muchos trabajos a nuestros hijos para nada, porque no hay solución

    Te dejo mi gratitud y gran estima. Un abrazo lleno de bendiciones para este resto del año y para el que entra. 2020. Que todos tus sueños se vean realizados.

    FELIZ NAVIDAD.

  49. It's so nice to see how many comments are here. 😊 It is a lot! 😄😊 And Alzheimer's is one of the "cureless" diseases and it makes me sad. Maybe someday there will be a cure, I don't know. My grandfather has Alzheimer's and I hope there will be a cure for him. Happy holidays and Merry Christmas for you! 😊

  54. I Can't still believe that i got cured from Genital Herpes through herbal treatment from Dr Oyagu who I met through the internet, I actually couldn't believe it at first because it sounded impossible to me knowing how far I have gone just to get rid of it. Dr Oyagu send me his medicine which I took as instructed and here I am living a happy life once again, a big thanks to Dr Oyagu, I am sure there are many herbal doctors out there but Dr Oyagu did it for me, contact him oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com , also call or whatsApp him on +2348101755322
