It is just one more day until I see Peggy again. I am nervous about the meeting because it will not be the Peggy that I have known all of my life. It will be a different Peggy.
She won't be the little girl who was my shadow.
She will not be the teenager who became my friend.
She will not be the adult who was my confidant and teacher.
I will hug her and try to act like nothing has changed.
When I smile, touch her face and look into her eyes....it will not be the Peggy that I have known all of these years. I will be seeing a person who has forgotten that I was ever a part of her life.
When I look at Peggy, I will be seeing Alzheimer's disease and what it has done to my beautiful sister, my forever friend.
I will be staring at Alzheimer's disease..........
Face to Face.
I pray for courage, I pray for strength but most of all...
I pray for Peggy!
I Love You Today, Peggy!
