There is no way to understand how Peggy's brain is working. I was ready to hang up after talking for a while when I asked...
Peggy, do you know who this is?
Yes, she said.
Who am I?
I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or cry. Who the heck is Jim?
Peggy seems to get worse with each call and there is not a single thing that I can do.
She answered my questions with one word. Yes, no, good and I can't leave out Jim.. now can I!
I hope that the Jim she thought I was this morning is a nice person. I hope that she knows that Jim and Mary Louise care about her so very much.
My eyes wanted to cry when she thought that I was Jim but my heart had to laugh because I know that she is trying so hard to sound normal.
She said "Jim" with the assurance that she knew who she was talking with. I didn't have the heart to tell her she was wrong and that it was me.
So, this is Jim saying good-bye today.
I Love You Today, Peggy
Jim AKA Mary Louise
