Doing hospice work, I have learned to enjoy the simple, the spontaneous, the people, the now, and to share my love. As we all continue to grow in our awareness of life’s meaning, we learn quickly that nothing stays the same or last a life time. Oh sure they love to sell us life time warranties, life insurance, and things that will out last us….but does it really? What does last?
Having the honor of caring for dying people daily, I have learned that they know all too well what it means to have their warranty run out or how that life insurance did not insure a life well lived. One thing these precious people do know for sure is that the days left have been given to them to fully enjoy as a gift. Their love intensifies and they become people powered by love.
