Sisters!!! That’s who we are….we may not be connected by the branches of the same family tree, but are we ever connected.
We have all walked a path that only we understand.
We gave of ourselves, not because it was our job to do so; we gave because our hearts propelled us in that direction. We stood next to them in the elevator that took us to chemo. We sat in the recliner next to the hospital bed while they began to heal from surgery. We changed bandages, we emptied drains from wounds on their tender skin. We helped them down the hall when they wanted to sit in a favorite chair and watch TV, in a room that was any where but the bedroom.
The dates on the calendar of care giving may have been different, but we still share this experience.
