TWO WORDS

   

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   I looked at a picture of Peggy and me when we were children and it seemed like yesterday.

I thought of how long ago that picture was made and thought.....

Yesterday and Forever are worlds apart but close.

I remember the first time thatI heard the word Alzheimer's Disease connected to Peggy  like it was yesterday but it was forever ago.

I remember talking to her on the phone, laughing and talking about an upcoming sister's trip as if it was yesterday but it was forever ago.

Our minds are powerful enough for us remember yesterday like it was really yesterday.

Two words...

So close and so far away in meaning.

Yesterday was a day ago, a year ago or many years ago.

Peggy is gone to me today but I have the the yesterdays. I wonder what it would be like to have neither???

I Love You Today, Peggy!  See you tomorrow, when today becomes.....

Yesterday.

Your entries never cease to touch me.  My own sister and I are not as close as you are with Peggy now, even with you being both parts of the relationship.  

Thank you for continuing to share.

See you tomorrow when today becomes yesterday!  I LOVE THAT.  What a great understanding of our timeless love for one another.

I think, if you have niether (today's memory or yesterday's memory) it is temperary like our world here is.  I believe God is present through our aware times and our unaware times,  In a way that only God can be present to us.

Thank you for all you are teaching us!

Love,
Wendy

   NOW THAT IT IS UP TO YOU TO KEEP THE REALITY OF YOUR SISTER REAL ... it is great to see photos that you have of her.  While your page was loading, I had it in mind to tell you how nice it is to see those photos.  This one is special.
