Imagine your love one is holding a box, and regardless of the size, it has all the room you need to fill it with everything you hope they will take with them. Perhaps fill it with your favourite memories of times spent together. Fill it with promises of things you will do because of them, and in honour of them. Fill it with all the reasons you love them and all the reasons you will miss them. This will be what they take with them..
That is the advice a friend gave to a young woman who was sitting at the bedside of her Mom, hours before she took her last breath .
Sometimes people don’t know what to say, sometimes they need a visual like an old antique box, to get things started.
What a beautiful way to share those last precious moments together.
