When my husband Mark was dying , Hospice had to be called in. The two of us did not want to face what that meant. I told the Hospice workers that having them on board took our hope away. The social worker told me ." No, you just have to learn to hope for something different" . I learned so much from Mark's death, that being one of them. I learned to look to the unkown in Mark's case . Maybe his dying was not the end for him and I had to "hope" that some thing was still ahead for him, something I could not see or be a part of but still something good for him . As I deal now with my " friends" loss I have to face that maybe for her I must hope for something different too. Maybe instead of life with this man there will be another life for her without him. I thank you for your prayers as I think they are reminding me of that lesson about life. There is always hope you just need to adjust your focus.
