I called Peggy this morning to talk with her but she wasn't at the nurses station.
She continues to disappear with each passing day.
If it were not for the memories of those who love her...it would be as if she had never lived.
I watched Jimmy Stewart in "It's a Wonderful Life" last night and thought of Peggy.
I also thought about myself.
What would the world be like if I had never lived? Would it be better or worse?
Have I made a difference? Who have I touched as I have lived my life? What have I done to deserve living in the time that I have been given?
I wish that Peggy knew that she has made a difference by living and that the world would be a different place if she had not been born.
No one can be perfect as we live each day but we can treat the street person and the head of a company with the same grace and dignity.
Every person weaves a story as the minutes, days and years slide past.
The question is...
What does our story say about our life?
If we had never lived, would the people in our lives be different?
My parents, my sister's and my brother have made a difference in my life. My husband and my children have made a difference in my life.
Have I made a difference in their lives?
It's A Wonderful Life, Peggy!
Thank you for being a part of my life and for making a difference.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
Help me to make a difference in the lives of everyone that I meet and help me to make a difference in my own.
