“You have to slow down because before you know it, time is gone, and you can’t get time back.” – My Grandma

BY DOROTHY STEPHENSON Almost every Wednesday, I take my grandmother out to eat. She can’t drive anymore, she’s slowly losing her eyesight due to macular degeneration, and she recently fell and chipped her hip socket, so she’s confined to a wheelchair until she heals. Going to the restaurant in town is her social time and her outings throughout the day.
