Mary never expected that her commitment to support her aunt would open up new friendships and give her a new perspective on her own life. As she sits with her aunt and the others going through dialysis (for several hours) 3 days a week, she learns about their lives. If they want to live, they have to go through this process and they realize it.
Mary told me that she has been relieved of the responsibility of having to drive her aunt effective next week. She said she is happy about aunt's independence but sad that she will not be a part of these people's lives any longer. She'll miss the strangers she sat with all of this time while supporting her aunt.
It is obvious this unexpected connection has changed, for the good, how she looks at and values her life.
Have you made connections in unexpected places? If so, tell me about it.
