I have asked "Why" for many years. That is the question of the ages with no answer.

Seneca said; The thing that matters is not what you bear......

But, How you bear it.

I have been up with hope for Peggy and down with hope in pieces on the floor. I finally realize that there is no hope for Peggy to recover. So, what do I do with this realization?

I stop asking Why and start asking.....

What Now?

I Love You Today, Peggy and I miss you!

Mary Louise

why me, why her, why us, why now......

What now?

Now, we pray for Peggy's comfort.  We pray for Gods arms to be crcadling Peggy.  We pray that any suffering is short lived and peace is brought to all involved.

what now?
we pray, and pray more.  And we do what ever it is to make it easier on Peggy and all involved.

Life is short....  it is now that we follow through with our gut feelings.  Now...., work now with what you still have to work wth.

and pray now, for any miracle you can imagine.  "At least you know God is listening"  God may have better answers than we ever imagined.

I wonder sometimes id God Himself knows why. I cannot imagine him saying, today, I am going to start taking Peggy's mind away. I do know that through you, Peggy has taught me more about Alzheimers than I ever learned from books and articles and friends' stories. I know you will keep loving Peggy forever, and love does matter in this world, and that prayer can help in some way we cannot always understand. You are all in mine. Margo

Mary Louise,
I guess what now is all you can ask.  What now is just
dealing with what life brings.  You have done so many
wonderful things for your sister.  You love her daily.
And that baby doll you bought her is just precious. I'm
just positive she will treasure it.
