5 Tips to Brain Health - #Alzheimer's Really Stinks

This is not a sponsored post, but I did want to share with you.  

My Grandaddy has Alzheimer's.  Let me just tell you, this disease SUCKS.
I am sorry, this is not a happy post, but like I said... I wanted to share it with you.

If you were around ages ago, I posted when my grandparents met Broxton for the first time... The joy and love...  I tell you, when it comes to family, I am totally spoiled with a wonderful family that is full of love.  Talk about being lucky...   Until Alzheimer's comes in and messes things up.

My uncle (my grandaddy's brother) was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and recently passed...   It was a very hard time for me... and it makes me hate it that disease that much more.  (Several of my grandaddy's family has suffered with this horrible disease.)   Imagine going to visit your grandparents and then one day you go... He is there physically but he has that look in his eyes where he has no clue who you are... Yep, that is how it is now...   Most tim…

Have a child between the ages of 2-6?  Or do you have (or know)  a child that loves to have fun and age really doesn't matter?  If so, I have a book for you to check out!     We recently received the book Recipes for Play  and just looking at the cover, you know it will be a fun one!  The book starts with a "Letter to Mess"   You know, saying to come visit... but not stay to long :)  Then, as we get to the Table of Contents, you see what all is in store for you!

Karate Kid meets Fast and Furious in Brick Mansions.  I wanted to watch it, since it had Paul Walker in it and I just love him...  (Rest in Peace, hate that such a great actor is gone.)  I guess this was the last movie he finished filming before he died...  Anyways... I was excited to see this movie and it did not disappoint.  I watched it after putting Broxton to bed and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.  I was a bit confused in the start, since I did not read the synopsis beforehand...  I tell you, I saw "PAUL WALKER" and that was all it took...
