MY BEST FRIEND

Peggy has been apart of my life since I was 3 years old.

Now that she is disappearing, I feel like a 3 year old inside today who's best friend has moved away.

 

It is interesting that a grown woman can feel as lost as a child but I do as I experience the disappearance of Peggy from my life.

I have to remind myself that even hard objects become smooth and disappear over time. I remind myself that nothing is promised forever.

I know that we are not promised forever but my forever with Peggy...

Came to soon.

I read this the other day and wanted to share what it was like to have Peggy for a sister.

A sister is one of the nicest things that can happen to anyone.

She is someone to laugh with and share with, to work with and join in the fun.

She is someone who helps in the rough times and knows when you need a warm smile.

She is someone who will quietly listen when you just want to talk for awhile.

Peggy was that kind of sister and I miss her and....

 I think that it is alright to be a 3 year old inside today.

Some days are just like that and I feel sad because......

 My best friend, Peggy has moved away! 

I Love You Today, Peggy!

I Miss You!

Of course a grown woman can feel as lost as a 4 year old child.  It is through the eyes of a child that we come to konw God too.

Even sharp things dull over the years... nothing is forever... those are powerful words to hear.  We all face the dulling edges of our lives.  When we were a child, all was so sharp and shiny.... I am thankful for TIME to understand that.  Even being a little prepared can help in the most unpreparable situations.

They say it is better to have loved and lost than to have never been loved before....
well, when i was a teen getting my heart broken by ignorant guys, i didn't believe it... because i was content before meeting them..

BUT... I do see that even a small time of huge great things are better than lots of time with nothing special to love.

this doesn't make it any easier to lose though.  just gives us SOME help during the hardest times.

I hope.
Love,
Wendy

I am happy that your sister is talking to you much to the nurses surprize...Somewhere she remembers you...My grandfather stopped remembering recent events but always remember what was in the past...but not always accuratly
He could not understand  where my grandmothers went to because all that there was .....was this old woman he didnt know..
Me and my grandmother laugh about it now...He remembered my grandmother looks only when they first got married well of course she wasnt that young looking woman any more...
Now that my pa paw has been gone for many years we still laugh about some of the stuff he did and said...
He would like the fact that we laugh about it because he would of laughed along with us had he know....
I hope that there will be some good things to come out of this somehow...I know you miss what she was but she loved you then and she loves you now ...she just proves it in other way....suttle ways like talking to you when she wont talk to anybody else...
You matter.....you do

    Through your entries, I can feel the wonderful relationship that you shared, and continue to share with your sister.  I can feel how much you love her, and how much she means to you.  I have sisters, too, and I would be devastated to see this happen to any one of them.  But I hope that I would be the kind of sister that you are being to Peggy.  You have not stopped loving her, and supporting her, and being a sister to her.  And this, I am quite sure,  she is aware of. Maybe not in the same way she did before, but in her heart she feels your presence.  And that is the most important place of all. My best wishes to you, and to your dear Peggy..

Louise,
Reading about your journey with Peggy is so very sad.  As others have said, it is a long goodbye, that is so painful and filled with grief.  You describe (in an earlier entry) grief so well.

I am so sorry that Peggy, her family, and each of you have had to travel this path.  Thanks for sharing that journey so candidly and thoughfully on the web.
