Blog Challenge #2

2. Write about someone who inspires you.

When thinking about someone who inspires me, I realize that this has changed over the years, but there is only one person who really inspires me now. That would be my grandma Pat, who is living with Alzheimer's Disease. She has always been like a mom to me, and has been a huge influence on my life. It breaks my heart to watch her loose who she is everyday, but she will always be my grandma. I love her more than words will ever know, and no matter what she will always be grandma, even when I'm not Candi anymore. The one thing she has taught me is that you can live life, but the memories you make will be yours forever, so make the most out of them while you can. Love you grandma!


  1. (((HUGS))) I know how much this upsets you and how strong you are for everyone in your family.

  2. Candi, I get updates about your grandma from mine. I cant imagine what your going through. My Grandma is one of my best friends. A great book to read is The 36-Hour Day by Nancy L. Mace & Peter V. Rabins. Excellent book on Alzheimer's. If you do read it let me know what you think. If we ever get together you can borrow my copy.
