NEW BEGINNINGS

Easter Sunday.

New beginnings.

A new start.

New buds on the trees.

Flowers struggling to raise their heads from the cold earth to feel the warmth of the sun.

Spring.

A new beginning.

Peggy's new beginnings ended when Alzheimer's disease destroyed her hope for spring and the privilege of beginning again.

Alzheimer's ended all things new for Peggy.

Today, I feel the new beginning in my life.

The sun is shining, flowers blooming, trees budding.

The air is warm with spring and the promises that spring will bring to my life.

For Peggy, there is no spring, no hope and no excitement about the promise of 2006.

Alzheimer's disease has ended the promise of spring and of renewed life for her.

Because....

Only those who remember can begin again!

I Love You Today, Peggy!

Happy Easter 2006

Peggy's new beginnings are different.  She still has her new EASTER Jewlery!  She smiled when she opened it.  That is a different type of  new beginning.
and death..... is a birth of a new beginning.
the process is not easy, but it is happening to all of us.
love,
Wendy

Hi Louise and thanks so much for the visit.

I have just started to read your journal and I must say that I don't know what to say.  So much to digest.

Bless you for sharing,

Deb
