We have been very fortunate to have met incredible nurses, care aids, patients and families at hospice.
I have felt a particular affinity to C, D and M.
M is across the hall from mom and is a light and lovely soul also battling cancer. We think she may have also been in the chemo room the first time mom had her chemotherapy.
C is just here to help get his pain under control. He has asbestos in his lungs from working in an asbestos-lined building for many years. Did you know that hospice is a place to get help for pain relief not just a beautiful place to die?
Then, we end with D and his family. D is a fellow teacher, nature lover and suffering valiantly with ALS. I have felt depth and love from his daughter A and she has helped me tremendously through this by sharing her story and her life.
This afternoon D, his wife and his three girls blessed us with their singing. It was a lay down on the ground kind of moment.
Glory to God for the gifts He gives each of us. We are so incredibly unique and beautifully made.
