Bless you for the important, compassionate, taxing work you do. My daughter is a hospice nurse so I have seen what you are talking about. Both quotes are powerful and are the way I wish we would all live.

What a thoughtful and thought provoking post. Thank you! When my dear husband died some years ago, it was the palliative care nurses & chaplains who held my hand and spoke truth in the face of great devastation. Today, I am grateful for folks like you...who stand in that holy & hard space and offer presence, compassion and truth.
