Playing With Nanny’s Shadow: How I Dealt With Grandma’s Alzheimer’s

I was so very blessed to know my Grandmother, aka “Nanny”. She turned 93 about two weeks before she passed away in 2015. There is so much in my high school history book that she actually LIVED THROUGH. I’m amazed at some of the stories she has told me. One thing nagged me though. It

My Perception is Based on Your Actions

“I’m not like that at all.” “You think you have me pegged, but you don’t.” “That’s not something I would do.” “Your perception of me is completely off-base.” Sound familiar? I’m sure you have heard one of these or some form of one of these at least once. Chances are, you have heard it multiple

Having A Rough Time

I realize I haven’t posted in a while and it’s such a shame because I had so many posts planned. I’ve been keeping busy to keep my mind off this time of year. The Superbowl was a great distraction for me, as is all of the other tasks I have taken on. February 2nd is
