QUIETNESS

I have been quiet for awhile in my writing.

It is not that I don't have a lot of words and feelings wandering around in my mind. Words and feelings concerning Peggy.

No words are making it to my fingers at this time.

These times come.

These times go.

I know that I will be able to write my feelings again.

Right now, they are resting.

Sometimes, I have so much to say that I am unable to talk.

I Love You Today, Peggy! 

 I know that you never would have imagined that I could be quiet!

In quietness and trust..is your strength  Isaiah 30:15

Mary Louise, I want to thank you for all you do share with us. Because of your story,I recently began a volunteer job spending one afternoon a week with a woman with early Alzeimers. We don't do much, but I free her to roam the halls safely, to go outside to sit in the sun, to make it to a couple of the activities that she would miss because of her confusion. As I talk to her and make silly jokes(some of which she still gets (thought she no longer talks much), I think of Peggy so often. I know Peggy will never know how she has made an impact on my life, butr I wanted you to know. Margo

There is no compulsion to write, Mary Louise. Only follow your heart. I hope Peggy will be able to come back to you somehow.

Peggy is a touchstone to happy days in the past.  It is up to you to now carry on for BOTH of you ... which you do so admirably by honoring her memory as you do.  When we love, it is because we have to ... not because we expect a reward for it.
