In all this waiting-for-kidney-stone maladies to heal (the surgeon tore my ureter)
I have been creating a healing journal. I’m not sure I can share it in its entirety,
but will at some point share within my comfort zone. It is a personal journal.
Today I entered a piece about my wonderful husband.
He has taken such good care of me in all this — and not for a week or two but for months! I’ve had to have my feet UP because the way I am proportioned the stents cause me pain when they move, blood, clots, et all. He has not only done all the work in our business,
but all the cooking (or much of it as I have prepped a few things), cleaning, and shared chores in our lives. He has also taken care of me — making sure I had interesting treats
(I am bored beyond belief at this point), a clean bed and a clean space in our studio
(I still went into work with him — he did not want me home alone.)
Taking care of someone selflessly is an act of loving compassion,
especially when done cheerfully.
It is the ultimate act, and while no one wants to have to do it
(it means our loved ones need our help), he shows me daily how much
he loves me by being present and kind and thoughtful.
I don’t know if he knows what an amazing man he is, and what a gift he is for me.
