I’m out of town, visiting a relative, whose husband recently had a stroke. He’s making a wonderful recovery; it’s also becoming clear that the recovery will take a very long time and that there is much hard work and frustration ahead, as well as many joys.
It is wonderful to see the commitment and love that shine through so many members of his family his friends and colleagues, and the extraordinary health-care professionals working so hard on his behalf.
There are so many frightening and frustrating things going on in the world. It’s too easy to forget how many great and loving things are going on. I’m grateful for the reminder.
