Going Backward through Time!

 I talked to Peggy today and after I hung up the phone, I thought that her age now, today anyway, must be around 3 or 4 years old.

She used one word sentences and struggled to put thoughts and words together.

She is still trying to sound normal and she hasn't given up!

A real fighter...Always has been.

 But she is in Fact...Going Backward in Time.

She started this process called Alzheimer's as an adult and will decend through time and become a helpless baby.

She will forget how to eat and even forget how to breathe.

She is on a journey that will take her back to our Mother's arms.

The picture of us together and Peggy in Mother's arms ( 4th picture) is one of my favorite pictures.

Now, it is a great comfort to me as I see her losing ground so fast.

 One Thing That I Am Certain About is This........

I know when Peggy reaches her distination....

She will be safe in God's Presence and Our Mothers Arms!

Just like in the picture taken so long ago.

Another day of saying goodbye to My Sister...My Forever Friend!
