When I was little, my Grandma would take me to a river by the fairgrounds and we’d have picnics and feed the baby ducks. I never did that with anyone else, and McDonalds french fries will always remind me of it.
My Grandma isn’t doing well now, she was recently diagnosed with dementia. She can’t remember yesterday, but I bet she would remember the baby ducks.
It’s painful to watch people you love slip away from you, especially when you can’t do anything but watch.
Happy memories like this are what keep those people close to you, it keeps them in your heart so even when they are gone, a part of them keeps going.
Sorry for the sap, watchers, it’s been a rough day.
