Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Little Boys Bring Miracles

Alzheimer's is a horrible disease.  It steals your memory.  It steals your mind.  It steals your body.  It can't steal your love though.  Sure you don't always remember people, or places, or the date or what is going on, but you always remember the love you feel inside.  Little boys have a way of bring it back to you more clearly. 

Every time Aiden visits my grandma it is like he brings everything back to her.  She knows who we all are.  She seems to just light up.  She talks baby talk to Aiden.  She knows who my grandpa is and kept holding his hands and crying saying "don't go".  She said I love you to all of us.  She kissed my cheek.  She cried happy tears because she knew us all, and she cried sad tears when we left. 

It may be hard to see her, because she is only a shell most days, not the person I remember.  Her hair was always styled and dyed red, but not anymore.  Then there are visits like this when I bring Aiden with us and it brings her back.  It makes it just a little easier to come back again, knowing she really is still in there somewhere. 

Here are some pictures from our visit this week.
