Watching Peggy disappear has released all the saved tears of my life.
I have cried over things that I had tucked away and willed myself not to cry over long ago.
Silly things like... the boy in 1st grade who call me a stupid butt and hurt my feelings.
And for the girls in 7th grade who didn't think that I was good enough to be in their click.
I cried for the times that I was embarrassed over something that I had said or done.
I cried for the disappointment I saw in my parent's eyes at times when I was growing up.
I cried again for the babies that I lost by miscarriage.
I cried for the times that I have let my husband or children down.
Watching my sister disappear has given me a reason to release my tears of the past.
I think that when we finally let go and have a long, releasing cry....
We cry for what has happened in the present and causes our intense pain but we also cry...
All the tears of our lives!
OVER ALL THE MOUNTAINTOPS IS PEACE. IN ALL TREETOPS YOU PERCEIVE SARCELY A BREATH. THE LITTLE BIRDS IN THE FOREST ARE SILENT.
WAIT THEN; SOON YOU, TOO, WILL HAVE PEACE.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
