Three summers ago when we were pregnant with Rome, Zak and I went through some really intense counseling in lieu of a baby moon. We didn’t do this because our marriage was rocky, but instead as an investment in our marriage. Through sanctuary (the name of the counseling), I learned that my grandmother was the person who would always give to me without giving me any reason to feel guilty. She would always give me money, even if I said I didn’t need it. She would help me in anyway she could. She was the funniest woman on the planet. I have a million memories of her and they all involve laughter. I use the word “was” instead of “is,” because although she is still physically alive, Alzheimer’s disease has taken her mind. She can no longer walk on her own, she is incontinent, she can eat, but has to be fed, most of what she says sounds like gibberish, and she doesn’t know who I am. All this being said, as I lay and stare at her in bed yesterday when I was home in GA, in my heart I could feel that she knew me. She smiled at me and told me she loved me. She still seems to be hanging on to her sense of humor. My Grandma B.J. is somewhere still in there. I freaking hate Alzheimer’s disease. It’s so shitty. There is just no other way to put it. I miss my spunky grandma. Praying a cure for this horrendous disease. Thankful for my sweet Mama and Granddaddy Pete for loving and caring for her so well, even though it’s so hard. I love you “ever so much,” Grandma B.J.! 💕

These little moments.
.
The boys sitting with their Nana, asking her what her parents looked like. ❤️
.
For those of you that don’t know, my mom has memory issues, and not just the kind that come with ‘age.’ It stared many years ago and luckily for us it’s been a slow progression. In the first years when it started, I carried so much anxiety and disappointment with me, wondering how fast things would decline, how long we had with ‘her,’ would her grandkids get to know her and remember her when they grew up?
.
She’s not really the mom I grew up with anymore and certainly isn’t able to do what I pictured her doing as a Nana, but she does as much as she can and functions pretty darn well despite everything.
.
Over time that anxiety I used to carry turned into me being thankful for the time we DO have with her. For what she CAN do, for the time she DOES gets with the kids. And so in these little moments when she’s hanging with my kids, laughing with them, taking them for little walks, and telling them about her parents, I’m grateful. They’re nothing remarkable and exciting, but they hold a little place in my heart. And I’m hopeful my kids will carry some of these memories in their hearts too as they grow up.

Today is #AlzheimersAwarenessDay. My grandmother suffered through that vicious disease and on August 22, 2012 she passed away. She was only 73. She helped raise me, and watching her battle that disease for 8 years was the WORST, heart wrenching thing to witness and go through. Please don’t take anyone for granted. Please make the time and effort to spend time with loved ones, because you don’t know when their last day is•
💜💜💜💜💜

Grandma & Pappaw on their balcony in Portland. Poor grandpa, doesn’t know what day it is. Alzheimer’s is making things difficult for all of us. But what matters most is that we love and support each other. #curealzheimers #fightalzheimers #alzheimersawareness #alzheimerssucks

So tonight I sat down and went through SOME of the doilies my grandma made throughout her lifetime. Notice I said some. I had approximately 225 round doilies and probably about another 50 odd shaped pieces. And there are still many more to go through. Here is the first dreamcatcher I made with one of the her doilies. My grandma has Alzheimer's disease and is now in a nursing facility. My plan is to make her doilies into dreamcatchers to capture her artistic legacy and as inspiration to do more research into finding a cure for and/or prevent Alzheimer's disease. The dreamcatchers will go on sale through my Etsy shop via the @thehatchedcollection or thehatchedcollection.com and a portion of the sales will be donated to the @alzassociation. #doily #dreamcatcher #crochet #dreamcatchersforalzheimers #dream #crochet #curealzheimers #grandmaslegacy

As I embark on my 4th year of Blondes vs Brunettes, I ask for all of your help. I started playing for my grandfather who left us in 2013 and I continue to play not only for him but for everyone who has, is, or will come encounter with the same disease that cripples the mind of all we hold dear. Help me, help us, help all those who have been effected who will be effected to raise the awareness and the funds to give the families and those directly impacted the care they need and the research to one day live a life without Alzheimer’s.
Click the link in my Bio to learn more about my story and to #donate any amount helps and gets us that much closer to the real reward. #curealzheimers #nenychapter #blondesvsbrunettes #tacklingalzheimers #rivealz #endalz #charity #footballforacause
