To some of you, this project may seem petty... strange... pointless....
But this is why I do projects like these.
They motivate me.
The force me to not only do something, but to document it too.
To capture a moment of my life forever.
When I started this project in May, I added 'play bingo' because I wanted to do something for my grandma. Her heath started to decline and we were forced to move her into a nursing home.
She was unhappy and I wanted to do something to cheer her up, to give her something to look forward to.
Little did I know this would be one of the last things we would ever do... if not the last thing.
I don't remember if I saw her after this. I got sick and couldn't do much for a week. And then she passed the week after that. If I did see her, it was one of those short gatherings where mom and I dropped some things off for her, chit-chatted for a little bit, and then left. But I honestly don't remember.
What I do remember is this day. It didn't go quite as planned. We rushed to make it to the game, we played a few rounds and then she got tired.
But there was some laughter. A memory created. And I made sure we got a photo. Not just for this project, but to remember her all the way up to the end.
And I'm so glad I did.
