PEGGY'S LIFE CANDLE
I think that the day we are born and draw our first breath, God lights our life candle.
Our candle burns as we live our lives. The wax of all of our yesterday's run down the side of the candle creating a river of life that runs hot, cools and disappears.
Peggys candle of Life is still burning but the flame is beginning to flicker.
Alzheimer's Disease is standing by Peggys flame of life and slowly blowing it's icy breath on the flame. Peggy's light is dancing from side to side, trying to stay lit and bright.
As the days go by...Peggy's flame will be extinguished and Alzheimer's Disease will clap it's hands in victory.
It will take it's crooked finger's and approach Peggys Life candle. If there is still smoke rising from the wick of Peggy's life candle..........
Alzheimer's will smile as it wets it's fingers from it's mouth and taps the wick of Peggys life. There is an instant sizzle that signals another life has been snuffed out by this disease.
The fire from Peggy's life candle will be........Gone.
Darkness will fill the place where Peggys light was and where.......
Alzheimer's Disease still lives and extinguishes lives..... one flame at a time.
I Love You Today, Peggy and I miss you more than I can write!
