Living in "The Dash"

No one answered when I called Peggy this morning so I left a message and told her that I loved her today.

I couldn't help but think of a day in the future when I will never hear her voice again. 

 It was a morbid moment and I tried to shake it from my mind.  Then I thought.....  it wouldn't have to be morbid at all.  

When Peggy is gone from us, her grave stone will have her name, her date of birth and the date of her death.

I have heard that...

It's not the Birth date or the Death date's on a grave stone that are important...

It is the DASH between the dates.

The Dash indicates how we have lived our lives!

 We are all living "our Dashes".

Peggy has lived and is living her Dash to the Fullest. She still gives and loves as she continues to disappear from our lives!

This journey with Peggy is teaching me so many important lessons. Making my dash count is one of those lessons.

This is a quote from Barbara Bush.........At the end of your life,You will never regret..

 not having passed one more test.

 not winning one more verdict. 

 not closing one more deal.

You Will regret...  Not spending time... with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent.               

Thank you again, Peggy for being my teacher.

To have a loving relationship with a sister is not simply to have a buddy or confidante---It is to have a Soul Mate for Life........Victoria Secunda

I Love You Today, Peggy!
