Dancing Through The Rain

Have you heard the phrase, "I'm dancing as fast as I can"?

When I finished my call to Peggy this morning, that is the way that I felt!

 My heart was tired from dancing! I had to dance around the silences, dance around her struggle for words, dance and pretend that everything was normal.

If  Love and dancing were enough, We could All Love and Dance her Well because Peggy is surrounded by family and friends who Love her and who would Dance for her Forever!

Sometimes, Love is Not Enough!  Sometimes, we can't Dance fast enough!

My Dancing cannot stop the Dark Storm clouds of Alzheimer's from gathering around her head. 

No Matter how fast I dance, I cannot stop Alzheimer's from pelting her mind with a cold rain.                

 But I can.......GRAB MY UMBRELLA AND COVER HER HEAD

  AND....TOGETHER, WE CAN DANCE........

WE CAN DANCE THROUGH THE RAIN and THROUGH the STORM

 OF THIS DISEASE!!!!!!!!

I LOVE YOU TODAY, PEGGY!

Only the ones who have sisters can really understand the magnatude of your journals words. Beautifully written, touched my heart. This has just been forwarded to MY sister. She needed food for thought today also. All to be said... until we meet again in heaven, I will be your guide here on earth. Now to wash down that lump in my throat. Wendy
