Passing Bye

Yes. I could make more money. I’m straddling the line of poverty. No. Seriously. Think medical crap. And I don't date anymore. And you know what a whore I’ve been. And I don’t go on vacations and haven’t in over 7 years.

But ...

There is a privilege afforded to adult caregivers. There’s an exquisite sorrow and yet a tremendous joy to holding your loves’ hands and guiding them. And there’s a satisfaction to sitting beside a parent awaiting surgery. It’s priceless. So, I’ll sit here and watch the parade pass by. For now. And I’ll offer succor and kindness and gentility as they take their final journeys.
