The feelings evoked by the video below are why I make time every day to visit someone who lives with dementia.
Not because it’s a chore or a job. Not because it’s “work.” Not because I feel obligated, or because I feel there’s a debt I need to repay or because I should do so for whatever other unimportant reason.
No. None of the above.
I create time for joyful acts of shared loved, compassion, and humanity because I want to. The time we spend together is full, tender, profound and healing for both of us. These moments, minutes and hours are also meaningful for those who are with us.
Times like these weave the fabric of the most beautiful love stories ever. Just like the one you are about to watch in the video. They are the very essence of life and I am so grateful to be able to breathe them in.
Work your loom.
