..you only die once

I woke up feeling grateful that I am able to share my skills with someone in need. However, I could not predict how amazing and rewarding it would be.

I arrived at the hospice early, to organize and familiarize myself with the area, nurses and the rest of the girls on my team.
My impression of this place haven’t changed. It’s still is very warm and peaceful, I like it here.

First patient – the one I’ll never forget.

Handsome gentlemen as appears to be in his 70’s calmly laying in bed. His well put together wife sitting next to him, rubbing his hand, feeding him at times. She says he loves foot massage and he’s thrilled for the treat.

So I proceed. As I gently warm the lotion between my hands I place my hands on his feet. His skin is soft and warm and I already feel his energy. He instantly relaxes and manages a little smile as a sign of approval and a state of bliss that he is in.
My heart melts, I become emotional. I don’t want him to leave his wife, not yet at least. I picture myself in her shoes, it’s getting harder. I take a big breath. I look up and see how much he’s enjoying it and that makes me feel a little bit better.

I go on…

I moved on to his hands and that’s when it became unreal.
I don’t want to let go. I want to rub and hold his hand. His energy is pulling me towards him, he’s giving me his positive vibration. I can feel it, it’s surreal! 

First time in my life I felt like the time has stopped and nothing else matters but this moment. I didn’t force it, it came over me as I connected with this men on the level I can even describe. I didn’t wanna leave, not because I felt sorry for him or his lovely wife but because where I was, time stood still and the feeling of peace and happiness was hovering in the air. 

What just happened? I left with more than I came with…

I might not be able to comprehend this concept, but what I know for certain is, ‘If today were last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?I’ll always say YES!

What would YOU do today?
