My Sister, Peggy!

One's Sister is a part of one's essential self, an eternal presence of one's Heart and Soul and Memory....Susan Cahill

My Sister is my Past. She writes my history. In her eyes...I recognize myself,  Memories only We can Share.                                                               She remembers, she forgives. She accepts me as I am...With tender Understanding......Lisa Lorden   

I thank God, my Sister, for the blessing you are...                                                For The joy of your laughter....The comfort of your prayers...The warmth of your smile...  

A Sister is dear to you always, for she is someone who is always a part of all the favorite memories that you keep very close to your heart!

A Sister is one of the nicest things that can happen to anyone. She is someone to laugh with and share with, to work with and join in the fun. She is someone who helps in the rough times and knows when you need a warm smile. She is someone who will quietly listen when you just want to talk for a while.

My Sister is my strength. She hears the wispered prayers that I cannot speak. She helps me find my smile, Freely giving hers away.

She catches my tears in her gentle hands........Lisa Lorden    

I miss you, Peggy and.....

I love You Today!

Mary Louise

Mary Louise... You might want to have this journal published someday to help others who are on the same journey as you. Beautiful, heartfelt writing...
One can sometimes feel your saddness but always feel your love.

My dearest one...I cried as I read of your devotion to your sister. I lost my mother in November to Alzheimers. The long goodbye. It's crulty is unmatched. I will be praying for you, and checking back in. Always,

Sisters...I have four. Had five. I tend not to appreciate the ones I have left sometimes. Your journal helps me to treasure them. You are always in my thoughts. Lisa :-]

I wish there was something that could ease the pain of losing your sister a little piece at a time. I am touched the love you share.

ML, I feel that way about Peg too. I also feel that way about you and Betty Jean. Great writing. You are gifted and I hope everyone who reads it can know the truth about Alzheimers! I love you! caragrike
