Memories are some of the most precious things we have in life, we hang onto them throughout our life time and they keep us connected with our past. About 7 years ago, my gram began to lose grips with her memory. Anyone who knows her knows she took care of her health first and did anything she could to keep her mind going. Unfortunately, no amount of healthy food or activity could have stopped this disease from progressing.
I am lucky enough that she still knows who I am, even if she can't make the connection that I am her granddaughter. She knows that I am "Allysia". My gram is my best friend, my safe place, my sense of home. Though she is here physically, I miss her more than anything and would give anything for one more piece of advice. This disease has taken any chance of her helping me raise my kids, being at my wedding and watching me grow into the woman I am today. I know that she would never want my sadness to take over my life, so I try and try everyday to be the best that I can be. I will cherish the years of memories she has made with me, which are some of my favorite in the world, and I will continue to make them for her. I am who I am today because of you Gram.
