I sent Peggy a few gifts for Easter.
A book with pictures of babies because she always smiles now when she sees babies.
I sent her a little book about sisters. It was about sisters growing up. I put M.L. and P.J. next to the pictures of the little girls. It seemed the little book was written about us.
The last gift..I knew she would like.
I sent her rings, bracelet, pin, necklaces and a few other pieces of inexpensive costume jewelry.
Peggy always had beautiful jewelry and loved to wear it.
Long before she went into the nursing home, her jewelry had to be removed and put away for her daughters.
When I would visit her she would spend time looking at her hands. She knew that she used to have rings on both hands.
Now, she has rings again and a bracelet to wear and other pieces.
It won't matter if they get lost or misplaced. At least she has them for now.
Her husband said she smiled when she saw the jewelry.
So much has been taken from Peggy.
So much more than the expensive jewelry that she used to wear.
But at least now...
She has jewelry to wear again and I am so happy that I made her smile.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
