Life's a Cycle


Life begins and ends on an unpredictable day . . . 

the days in between are just the pages that make up the chapters of our book. 


It happens to most of us at some point in our lives, 
to witness a loved one's health slowly decline, 
this is a painful and helpless process. 

Is there an instruction manual? How do you deal with having a loved one who is living with the possibility of death every day from the moment that they open their eyes in the morning til the moment they close their eyes for the night...possibly thinking "will I open my eyes when the sun comes up next?".  

It's sad but it's also a reality that we all face, one day we will also be on the other end of the stick, so to speak...how will we feel then? scared, helpless, brave, impatient, resigned, accepting, peaceful or all of the above plus more? Until we are faced with this we will never know what we will feel...so we are in no position to judge.
