Peggy hasn't called me by name for over a year.
It really bothers me so when she took the phone and said hello this morning...I said, Peggy, this is MaryLouise. Would you please say my name??? She paused and didn't say anything.
The silence was deafening!!
That's alright, I said.... Don't worry about it!
I know that she couldn't say something that she couldn't remember from the moment before....... but it made my eyes leak and my heart hurt!!!!
I felt guilty that I even asked that of her but it would have been the Best Christmas Present ever!
I would just like to hear her say my name once more.
It's such a little thing but too difficult for her..
Maybe, one day she will surprise me and say ......Hello Mary Louise!
What a joyous day that would be!
What a Great Gift to a Sister who Misses hearing her Sister say her Name!
I love you today, Peggy!
