Brittany from Maryland

My grandma always took care of me when I was younger. My mother and father both worked full-time careers. We would cook together. She braided my hair. She is now older and cannot care for herself. I enjoy our Sunday's the most. I now cook for her and braid her hair. We even watch her soap channels together. Her memory fades at times. It's okay, I have her until the very end. Sometimes, I worry that I do not have the resources to provide the best care for my grandmother, but love and prayer seems to provide enough assurance that everything will be alright.
