My grief over watching Peggy disappear does not constantly cloud my everyday life.
My life is filled with many sunny days.
But every day or so a little black cloud will move over the sun of my day and block out the sunshine. Those are the times when I think of how much I miss having Peggy in my life. When I remember, the thoughts of her block my sun.
Then, the cloud moves away and the sun shines again in my day.
To stay under the cloud of grief would be too much.
There will be sunshine and dark clouds in my life.
There will be storms to endure and lightening will streak across my world as long as I live.
That is OK because if it was sunny all of the time...How would I grow as a person?
Peggy and watching her disappear will bring dark clouds and sad times but I refuse to stay seated under the dark clouds.
Some days are sunnier that other days and some days are dark with clouds blocking my view of life.
We cannot stop the storms of life but we can decide how we will react to them.
I will miss Peggy for all of my life !
But I know her and I know that she would come and hit me over the head if I sat in the shadow of a dark cloud every day.....
Because of her.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
