We have five floor to ceiling windows in our kitchen and they face west.
Cleaning them is a major task. I do it about three times a year, inside and out. I usually clean them in the morning before the afternoon sun comes streaming through.
It is hard work and I am always glad when the job is finished. Then, I can look into my backyard with clear vision.
But, it never fails that when the afternoon sun comes shining through...................
No matter how hard I work on those windows, there are always fingerprints left behind. They show up with the afternoon sun and seem to be permanently imprinted on the glass and no amount of work can clear them.
The sun shinging through the windows brings the tiny fingerprints of my children to life again. As well as the handprints of the adults who stood at the windows looking at the waterfall and pool.
I am never upset when the fingerprints show up because it makes me smile when I see them. It reminds me that the people in my world stay with me in the kitchen and they arrive every afternoon with the setting sun.
This is how Peggy being apart of my life, has affected me.
No matter how clean my life becomes. No matter how clean my brain and heart feel.....
Every time the afternoon sun of happiness and laughter stream into my life, Peggy's fingerprints can be seen all over my heart and mind.
She has touched my soul with her wit, charm, intelligence and beauty and left indelible hand and fingerprints on my life.
Alzheimer's disease has tried to wipe her fingerprints from the glass of my life but it cannot.
Her hand and fingerprints are indelibly printed there and will always stay.
As long as there is sunshine and light in my heart, every afternoon with the setting sun.....
Peggy's hand and finger prints will shine brightly as I live my life!
Her hand guides my hand as I write about her indelible fingerprints in this journal.
The Fingerprints of Peggy....
Her lasting expression of the love, the love of one sister for another.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
