If given the chance, what do people choose for their last reflections and comments? A veteran hospice chaplain gives an unflinching answer:
“They talk about the love they felt, and the love they gave. Often they talk about love they did not receive, or the love they did not know how to offer, the love they withheld, or maybe never felt for the ones they should have loved unconditionally.
They talk about how they learned what love is, and what it is not.
This is how we talk about the meaning of our lives. That is how we talk about the big spiritual questions of human existence.”
