Since the Germans coined the most common name used for this flower, it’s natural that there’s a myth of two lovers walking along the Danube River first seeing the bright blue blossoms. The man retrieved the flowers for the woman, but he was swept away by the river and told her not to forget him as he floated away. Whether the story is true or not, it’s certainly made the Forget Me Not a lasting symbol of remembrance. The Alzheimer’s Society uses it as an icon to raise awareness for the disease and support for caretakers. While the Forget Me Not has played a big role in Europe and America over the last few hundred years, it’s still relatively rarely used in other cultures.
I chose this design for my blog because we should never forget who your loved one was as the disease progresses, don’t forget them as times moves on and at times when it's the most difficult and stressful and don’t forget the memories you had with them even though it's hard.
CAREGIVING is a task not for the weak. Remember to dig deep and stay strong and encouraged.
