Oh today. It was hard. Harder than most hard days.
There are things that happen in this world that no one can begin to comprehend. I left today with two things on my mind: noise and silence.
The noise: people rushing in, shoes squeaking, talking, orders being written, flashing of the camera, computers beeping, monitors sounding, phones ringing.
The silence: nothing. Not a breath or a cry.
How do we, the caregivers from every discipline cope? How do we keep going?
Does time heal the broken-hearted? We need such a great amount of resilience…we aren’t miracle makers.
If I can sing that sweet child a song before Jesus takes them home, then I have done my job.
