Keeping the focus on what’s important

January 24, 2015

I got a phone call this afternoon from one of the hospice chaplains.  One of the nursing facility nurses had let her know I had called for an update since I wasn’t able to visit.

The chaplain said she had visited with my mother and read to her and that my mother was basically sleeping and seemed very peaceful and comfortable and relaxed.

I was grateful for the call and grateful for the content of the call, and it got me thinking further along the lines I had been thinking along, in terms of interpreting the storm and its impact on the situation:  that it is sometimes unclear, while our concerns and desires and fears (and sense of responsibility) are swirling around us, what actually would serve the greatest good for all involved.
