I am sitting here visiting a friend in the hospital. As I sit here listening to the machines beep in perfect time with one another, I am reminded of my grandmother, and what she must have gone through. They lay peacefully in repose knowing there are people who care for them and are willing to be there in their time of need.
It’s funny how we go about our everyday lives not even considering the possibility that it could be us lying in the bed with loved ones being there by our side. One never faces their mortality until they are confronted by it through someone else. It this then when you truly realize who your loved ones are.
