How Will I Cope?

Each and every day I watch and listen to how people are coping with their news of having a terminal diagnosis.  I wonder about the question, “How will I cope?”

There have been lessons learned, choices made and questions asked which influence my thoughts.  Yet I still wonder what my response will be when it is my turn to face my death.

I hope I have just even half of the grace, guts, energy and humility I see in our clients!  I mean really, these folks are waiting for their death!  That is a HUGE weight to carry.

Know I am pulling for your peace of mind!
