AN ANGEL FALLS FROM HEAVEN WITH EACH DROP OF RAIN....TO GUIDE IT TO IT'S PLACE. ( author unknown)
Peggy was crying when she took the phone this morning.
The sitter said that she had tried to keep her from watching President Reagan's funeral on television but Peggy insisted and had been crying as she watched.
When she said hello her voice was shaking. I asked her if watching the funeral on television had made her sad. She said no.
Then, why are you crying, I asked.
I'm not crying she replied. You're not? I said.
No, The angels are crying.
The Angels? Who are they crying for Peggy?
Her answer was........Me!
My grip tightened on the telephone receiver as I searched for something to say to her. My mind went blank because I was so stunned. I just told her that I loved her very much.
She said; O K. Thanks
Peggy no longer has words for her feelings so I am glad that she could cry this morning.
I am glad that she was crying because ...Tears are the words that the heart can't say and Peggy has forgotten how to use words.
How fitting on this National Day of mourning.
How fitting that the skies have opened up as I write and it is pouring rain outside.
How fitting that the angels are crying for Peggy because I am crying too.
The angels cry Joy... for the person that was Peggy.
I also cry for the person that was Peggy but I cry for myself, too. I cry because I miss my sister and watching her disappear is one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do.
Alzheimer's Disease has cut her life short and is taking her away but as she flies away a little more every day.... I know that..
She was in the arms of her Guardian Angel as she cried this morning and she is safe.
Safe.... as she finishes the journey that is...Alzheimer's Disease.
Sarah McLachlan had a touching song that said...
Spend all your time looking for that second chance...
for the break that will make it OK
There's always some reason to feel not good enough and it's hard at the end of the day.
I need some distraction or a beautiful release... as memories seep from my veins.
Let me be empty and weightless and maybe...
I'll find some peace tonight...
In the arms of the angels far away from here........ In the arms of the angels.....may you find some comfort there.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
