SLEEPING EYES

My 3 1/2 year old grandson climbed into bed with his Mom one morning. His Mom pretended to be asleep and so he shook her to get her to wake up. When that didn't work, he pulled her eyelids open with his hands and said:

Are you in there, Mommy???

There have been many times while watching Peggy disappear that I would like to do the same thing.

I would like to shake her to make her wake up and if that didn't work....

I would pull her Winter eyes of Alzheimer's open and shout.....

Are You In There, Peggy???? 

    

I Miss You!

I Love You Today, Peggy!

Peggy remains intact in your memories and your journal entries.  She may not be "there" behind her alzheimers eyes, but she is etched forever in your heart and mind.  I feel priviledged for being allowed to share Peggy with you.  Paulette
