Again - a hard one... Lots of soul searching and a yearning for the time before I committed to doing this publicly to encourage the next step in my Happiness Project...
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
I hope that I never have to hold the hand of someone I love whilst they are dying.
I hope that I am strong enough to be a comfort to my loved ones and strong enough to know that, that is enough for them even if there is nothing else I can do to help.
You are too late for that wish..I held the hands of both of my parents (five years apart) as they died and also my husband's parents...over the last 15 years we have lost all four, and we were there to comfort them as they passed,which is, at least, some comfort for us, and hopefully for them, too.ReplyDelete
Thank you for giving me some more perspective. I realise how naive (and selfish) it sounded. I have seen my mum do it and it scares me.ReplyDelete
I have held the hands of many people. None have been family members...yet.ReplyDelete
I hope to never have to see my childs grave.
