I have spent the past weeks sitting beside my daddy as cancer wins the war.
Why am I telling you this? For sympathy? To make you even more sad? NO.
I am learning about life as I watch it slip away.
I am no stranger to sitting around in hospital rooms. Neither are you.
This time it is different.
I am totally in the NOW.
I am not worrying about medications. I am not planning a future.
I am not making lists. I am not researching treatments.
I am sitting beside my daddy watching him breathe.
It’s been like hours of meditation.
I am paying attention to every detail like a researcher or reporter.
Totally immersed in the moment.
Coming from nowhere, going to nowhere.
