THE ELEVATOR .....ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

Peggy is riding on an elevator and it is ....Alzheimer's disease.     This elevator only goes one way and that is down. The button that displayed the up arrow has been disconnected. There is no help button or phone in the elevator for Peggy to call for help. 

The doors to the elevator of Peggy's mind are closing a little more each day.  Even though I try to keep the doors open by calling her every day to remind her that I love her...I can do nothing to keep the elevator doors from closing on Peggy. 

I see her standing in the elevator, smiling as she pushes the button that will close the doors and take her away.  She is getting tired of trying to find and push the up button in the elevator of her mind.

Keep trying Peggy because.....

I Miss You and I Love You Today!

If you can stretch your heart and expand your love so that it touches not only those to whom you can give it easily...but also to those who need it so much!  Daphne Rose Kingma

Putting an emotion into words....gives it life and a reality that  otherwise....it does not have.   Arthur Gordon
