BE KIND. BE LOVE. BE PRESENT
Yesterday I started my day with excitement for my writing and anticipation for my new offering to the world.
We went for a walk and a little joffle around our local area and I spent time with my people... then by the afternoon I unexpectedly went on a road trip to sit with my grandfather as he lay in hospital again.
I cried a little, I recalled my childhood memories, and the beautiful connection he and Mr 8 have. The nurses tried to wake him and let him know I was there.... but I was assured them there was no need as I was there for him.
Then I sat with him, holding his hand, listening to his breath, reassuring him he is loved, and soothing him when he became restless.
I feel honoured to be able to sit with him, to love him just as he is and I feel blessed to have the life we have.
