Among other things (soccer game, Mass, children's liturgy, pancake fundraiser, finishing a conduit project on the new house, laundry, ornament hanging and more), we visited my gran today.

It is always with deeply mixed feelings that I leave her. I'm happy to have seen her and spent time with her, and saddened by the continued deterioration of her mind. It is bittersweet, and more painful each time.

I love her very much, and will always remember the incredibly strong and capable woman she once was, even if she can't.

(She wasn't entirely pleased that I was photographing her today. "Oh! I don't have any makeup!" I told her what I saw: a beautiful woman.)
