MY SISTER...MY SELF

Dear Peggy,

I know who I am because I know who you are...you have always been my mirror.

I learned that I could lead because you followed my directions when we were children.

I also learned that I did not always have to lead when we were children, because you stood up to me and said, No!

I know who I am today because you are my sister.

I know what I can be because you have taught me in your struggle to remember me.

When I look in a mirror, I see me.

When I look at my eyes, I see you. The same shape and color of green.

I see you, Peggy..... when I see me.

We have always been ourselves but a part of one another.

We...Are Sister's.

Nothing can take that away,

Not Alzheimer's disease or all of your forgotten memories...

I know this because we made a pinky promise one summer day long ago.

We promised that we would always be there for one another, no matter what!

I'm still here, Peggy.

So, we are still.......We.

You will always be my sister, my forever friend as long as....

I remember the past that.......

You have forgotten.

I Love You Today, Peggy!
