It's me again.
I know that I talk to you a lot about many things.
Thanks for listening to me every day about my sister.
This morning, I want to talk to you about Peggy.
I know that you remember her because she used to talk to you a lot too.
She has forgotten how to talk now and so I will ask you some questions for her.
There were five children in our family, why was Peggy singled out to get a disease like Alzheimer's? Why not me?
Why did she develop Alzheimer's disease in her 40's when, if she had stayed well, she could have done a lot more good?
Why do bad things happen to good people?
I was pretty angry with you when Peggy got sick, God. I know you felt my anger but you allowed me to work through it. Thanks.
I know you are a loving God, so.....
Did you cry when Peggy found out her diagnoses?
Do you cry for her now?
It is raining outside today. Are those your tears?
God, please stay close to Peggy because she needs you even though she doesn't remember who you are any longer.
Is there a special place in your heart for people who don't remember who you are any longer?
We have something in common this morning God because Peggy doesn't remember me any longer either.
I know you know how it feels to lose someone you love.
That is why it is so comforting to talk to you every day because you know all and have experienced all.
Peggy is a special person but you know that about her because you sent her into my life.
God, I know that you have a lot to worry about as you see what has been happening on earth lately. So much destruction, war and loss of life.
Thank you for remembering one person in the mist of it all, my sister Peggy.
Thank you for loving Peggy even though she has forgotten who you are.
Thank you, God for these talks every day because they really help as I try to understand and live with loss.
It is as if I am a puzzle, in pieces all over the floor and you stooped down, picked up a piece of my life and said; this is where we will start Mary Louise..... One piece at a time.
It is nice to know that I can talk to you at any time, day or night and I know you are listening and caring and that.....
You are crying with me!
I Love You Today, Peggy and...
God sends much love to you this morning!
Peggy, I want you to know that one piece of my broken puzzle is back in place. There is a lot more to put back before the puzzle of my life is complete without you in it.......
But, one piece is back in place this morning.
God told me!
