My patient is improving slowly, and it is a lesson for my patience. In a week where I have lots to do to prepare for a cooking show at the chapel on Saturday, it is a lesson in sitting still and just being, when that is what is required.
When the temperature makes her cranky, and the coughing makes her sore, she wants a hug. Sometimes she wants a hug until she falls to dozing again, and that takes time, that I have to find. I have the same number of hours in the day every day, and it is a good thing for me to learn to choose wisely.
It is about the things left undone these past days, as much as things done.
