This morning, I wrote a weekly comfort called Depart, which talks about making memories. We can’t know the day and time of a caree’s final departure–we can only do our best to make today count.
Which makes me wonder: Do you want to know the day and time of the final departure? Would you want to know when death will arrive–for your caree, for yourself or for other family members? What are the advantages of knowing? Any disadvantages? Does it help you manage the day because you don’t know? Would it help you better manage your time if you did know?
