Offering of tears
This morning I had the beautiful opportunity to be on the opposite side of two different women at two different times for two very similar reasons, sharing their tears with me:
The first because she was heading over to the nursing home to lay in bed with her dying mom and watch Cinderella with her! Her mom went on Hospice this week and made the decision to be done with all her medications and slowly, peacefully, gently release her spirit.
The second woman I sat across from shared tears because her husband, sober for 25 years, began drinking again and had been hiding it for more than a year.
Both of these different tear stories share the experience of loss...profound loss and pain.
What a gift I was given today as the recipient of these tears.
