This season I am walking along side a friend at the end-of-her life. The combination of being the nurse and friend is letting me “feel” the weight of grief and see the beauty of life.
Once again I get to observe the heroism of humans as we all try to do the best we can to comfort and persevere with a person as they complete their life here on earth.
The tragedy of illness is burdensome. The hope of our faith is our way of escape…to tolerate the burden. If we could all be so brave.
