Coffee with Mom is about a journey neither my mom or author and pastor Mike Glenn wanted to take but had to anyway. Life didn't give them a choice. Mike's mom didn't want to be sick, and while she couldn't overcome the devastation of dementia and Alzheimer's, she wasn't going down without a fight. She fought the illness, denying its presence. She fought the doctors, "Who were these idiots anyway?" And she fought him, "How come you think you're in charge now?"
She would lose the war, but Mom went down swinging. Coffee with Mom is a book about a mom's fight, and the struggle of a son who wanted to help but didn't always know how. Most of these conversations and battles happened during morning coffee.
This book isn't about knowing all of the answers. This book is one son's journey with his mom; A story of a son who did the best he could, who wrote this story in hopes that you'll find a few laughs for your journey, realize you're not alone, and find the courage to do the best you can.
So, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and join us on the journey. You'll find yourself in the laughter and tears of not knowing what to do next. Making a decision and hoping it all works out but knowing it's the best you can do in the moment.
In the end, that's all that matters. "Do the best you can" is all love requires.
