Meme & Grace
Grace and I are visiting Nanny and Meme this weekend. My grandmother is so special to me. I lived with my grandparents and mom from the time I was 3 until I left for college. She did all kinds of wonderful, special things for me growing up. I'll never forget the time she bought me tap shoes, not because I was taking dance lessons, but just because I wanted to know what it was like to tap dance on the front porch.
She was diagnosed with Dementia (Alzheimers) in 2002. She has no idea who Grace is,"who's house" she is in, or that her husband of over 50 years is gone. However, one thing that she has not forgotten is...
... how to love.
