Surprises

Life will always include curve balls, events that change our direction or place us in to a crisis of some kind.  People who are experiencing end of life, are always in this phase.

The surprises they face are many, both positive and negative.  A positive surprise can be how much affirmation and love people pour out over them as they wait for their final breath.  A negative surprise is when the person goes unresponsive and can no longer verbally communicate, they have said their last words in life.

Whether positive or negative, a surprise will trigger a response.  Helping cushion the impact of those surprises is an intimate part of my work.  Thank you to all my clients who allow me in to be present with them in their surprises.
