Discerning Caring ...

is intentionally recognizing another’s humanness and creating meaning through self-understanding and reflection.


Reflection:  Asleep in sickness, I see you, my nurse. You rise above fear and offer touch, bathing, prayer. You join me in my space and see me. A ground full of meaning holds us. We understand the shared goodness …you journey with me towards death and me, with you, towards life.
