Loving Relationships

My mom’s friend came over today as usual. She told us about their mutual friend who she has been visiting in a nursing home. She described how their friend has been declining and is in a bad way. Her husband died a few years ago. She is estranged from her daughter and her son who is in charge of her care is there occasionally. It was a sad story indeed. At the same time, it made me appreciate the value of loving friendships – hers in particular. It also made me more grateful that I have been able to be present to care for my mom and for my dad as best as I could. As difficult as it has been, I can’t imagine not being here for them.

I Found God today in loving relationships.
