Emma shared with her followers the reasons why events such as birthdays and anniversaries have become challenging to celebrate since Willis received a diagnosis of dementia. “It got me thinking about how hard these types of ‘special occasions’ can be on caregivers,” she revealed. “When usually our person would acknowledge the event, now their changing brains just can’t. And that is what it is.”
She also revealed that she has been able to persevere through tough times thanks to the backing of her loved ones. Emma also used the opportunity to advise her fans to spread love to every caregiver they know and should be intentional about helping them if they choose to. “So my point is this. If you know someone that is looking after someone else,” Emma wrote. “Don’t ask what you can do, just do. This random act of kindness will honestly stay with me for a long time.”
Emma recounted how happy she was when one of her friends went overboard to demonstrate kindness after they had a conversation about her wedding upcoming anniversary. “Cut to, I get a text from my friend later that day that said she left a little something’ for me at my door,” she wrote. “It was this sweet bouquet of flowers (pictured) with a note that said ‘Happy Anniversary’ amongst other things. This random act of kindness will honestly stay with me for a long time. I love you Juliya. You singlehandedly made this day special for us.”
