In a caregiving role, you’ll often see what, quite honestly, you wish you didn’t. You may think to yourself regularly, “Oh, my, I could have gone through the day without having to see that.” Or, you may mutter, “I could have lived without having to hear that.”
Although you see some things which can be, well, somewhat gross or a little disturbing, you also witness, I believe, moments which can only be described as breath-taking. Or simply lovely. Or so important you want to remember them forever.
You are the witness to these incredible moments. In this six-word story, share what you witness, such as:
The value of life during death.
Shared smiles turn a day around.
A gentle touch continues us.
Forgiveness frees a generation.
Share your six-word story about what you witness, below. We’ll choose a winner on Saturday to receive a print copy of Help, A Collection of Stories By Those Who Care.
(Update: Congrats to Tom, who won a copy of “Help.”)
