When I got the phone call from my supervisor, I simply felt blessed that I had gotten to know her. That I had taken the chance to serve this woman at the end of her life, and hear her stories about when she was stronger and thriving.
I get a lot of different reactions when I mention I am volunteering for Hospice, and honestly I didn't know how this was going to play out. This woman was the first woman I got to spend a significant amount of time visiting, my other assignments have been filling in for others. So I didn't know, couldn't predict how I might react.
That is the beauty of life, is making the choice to find out. To dive in, to walk into a situation without telling the story about how it will end. As I continue to explore the idea of being a healer, I am excited to continue my Hospice involvement.
This quote is from a book that I was reading to myself during our last few visits, and I finished the book, sitting in the sun the afternoon that she passed away.
