HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PEGGY

Peggy had a birthday on February 13th.

Mother always said she was her Valentine baby. She was our whole families Valentine.

I thought of her on her day and remembered all of the past birthdays that she was privileged to have and remember.

This one was a special birthday. A milestone birthday. Her husband took her a cake and had her blow out a candle.......

 But to Peggy..........

It was just another day.

Another day of living with people in a nursing facility that she doesn't know.

Another year of having someone that she doesn't remember say........

Happy birthday, Peggy!

Another day of trying to figure out what a birthday is......what a cake is...what a candle is.....and.....

Who these people are!

I Love you Today, Peggy!

Happy Birthday

Her loss is such a loss to so many, even as she lives moment by moment unaware. The lesson she lives and ofers to others is so painful, but I am glad that you have such happy memories. I just wish she did. Margo

Hi Mary Louise
I havent had a journal in a while, but do still stop by and read yours.  My beloved Ex Mother in Law just lost her battle with Alzheimers last week, my own Mother had dementia.  Anyone who hasnt been through this cannot possibly know the heartbreak..take care, Mary Anne
