MY SISTER IS MY HEART.
SHE OPENS DOORS TO ROOMS.... THAT I NEVER KNEW WERE THERE.
SHE BREAKS THROUGH WALLS THAT.....
I DON'T RECALL BUILDING.
SHE LIGHTS THE DARKEST CORNERS OF MY LIFE WITH THE SPARKLE IN HER EYES.
This is what I miss about not having Peggy in my life.
Her mind is silent and her eyes have lost their sparkle.
There is no way that Peggy can open the doors to the many rooms of my heart.
She can no longer break through the walls that I build by living my daily life.
She can no longer light the darkest rooms of my heart with the sparkle in her eyes.
But I remember when Peggy's strength was a part of my life and I remember all that she taught me by being my sister.
Even birds push their young out of the nest so that they can learn to fly on their own.
Peggy is no longer a part of my daily life. I have been pushed out of the nest that we had built as sisters.
I have learned that I am a strong woman.
I have learned that flying without her is lonely but that I can do it.
Alzheimer's disease took Peggy away but by doing so it..................
Gave me the wings to fly on my own,with confidence and purpose.
Purpose.... to write about what it feels like from this side of Alzheimer's disease and not be embarrassed for people to read what I have written and most of all......
Confidence... to fly and soar in my life, knowing that my sister cannot catch me if I fall.
Hey Peggy...I'm doing it........ Thank you for helping adjust my wings................... so that I can soar!
I Love You Today, Peggy!
