it's been many years since i have written to you. But this year after losing my job (I was taking care of an elderly man during the day, but he passed away), I haven't really found anything. So now it is christmas and i know that it's not material things that count but buying things for the people i love to make them smile would be nice. And with my car being broken I can't afford to fix that either. So all i really want this year is a new job.
I would also like my aunt that was diagnosed with dementia (she's only 50 years old) to be whole and well again. We've noticed changes in her for the past 5 years but it was just recently diagnosed last year that she has dementia, and in the past year she has just been deteriorating faster and faster. I miss her smiling and laughing and telling stories, she never does that anymore she has enough trouble keeping up with listening to conversations going on around her. She has even more trouble putting sentences together when you ask her questions. She's a different person now, she's turned into a mean person and i miss the person i have loved all my life. I know there is no cure and it's only a matter of time b4 she doesn't remember any of the family, but she is too young for this to be happening to her. Even if she can't be well again can we have just one last christmas with her like she was so we could at least know it was the last one that she may remember we'd make it her best christmas ever.
Thanks so much Santa.
