The sun came made an appearance this weekend and it was glorious.
Day after day of rain got to us all. So when the perfect weather coincided with a couple of free days, it was on EVERYONE’S mind and seemed to be the one and only thing talked about.
I used to work as a hospice social worker and my husband is still deeply involved in hospice work. It is something that means a tremendous amount to me.
I haven’t worked directly with clients and families for a few years but the beautiful article and video reminded me of how much I learned while working in hospice. The ability to be a part of a family’s most private moments of love and transition and the amazing wisdom shared with me were worth more than anything I could give to them.
Almost every family had a story of their lives together that they wanted to share–an opportunity to reminisce, laugh, cry, and forgive. I listened and was grateful to have that privilege.
Reminded of the love that the Thompsons have for each other and especially shared with Charles, it made me appreciate my family laughing and playing around me even more. Made all the better by that brilliant sun.
