I met an unlikely sister.
She was my patient. We had different backgrounds. Different life experiences. Different present situations.
But we clicked.
It just felt natural. Easy. Comfortable. I spent an extended amount of time with this woman. She had a complicated medical history and was feeling down. I was able to share her struggles and encourage her. It was beautiful. We both realized it too. All too often I feel like I realize good times after the fact. But I don’t want to live like that. I want to realize the special moments when I’m in them. Perhaps that’s gratitude, or living in the present, or just paying attention.
I’m not sure what to call it, but I want more of it.
