I used to work in Hospice. I love that one of the lessons I learned from my Hospice patients was that at the end of the day/end of our lives, one of the few things that matter is our loved ones and our relationships with them. I took care of retired physicians, drug addicts, people too young to die, and those who were ready whenever their Time comes. Their end-of-life priorities were the same no matter what their “status” was. Those experiences have really helped me place my family as a top priority. Sunday is family day for us. And we work really hard to keep it that way. Speaking of family, I came across an old article about this amazing father and son. I hope you get to spend some time soon with someone you consider family.
