I spent the last week staying with my parents at their home. My mother has had a health issue for a while that is quickly gaining steam. The road ahead is one paved with uncertainty, challenges, stumbling blocks, and some just plain old hard days.
In the time I was there with them, it was amazing and inspiring to watch how my dad (who is nearing 90) gave such tender care and encouragement to my mom.
And I couldn’t help but think about how brave he is – they both are – to face what is coming. And they are facing it by holding hands and sticking together.
Sometimes that is the best and bravest thing we can possibly do.
