My friend who had a kidney transplant has been in and out of the hospital again.
I only have a moment to seize with her when she is able to send out text messages.
I send her messages the rest of the day hoping that they are read.
My father begins pre-dialysis preparation today.
It’s been long overdue.
On my way to visiting him last night he asked for dark chocolates, his favorite.
I swung by the store and picked up a couple of chocolate bars.
The night before it all begins is my best moment to seize.
I shut the door behind me with fingers crossed praying that all will be well.
It was a good coaching Monday.
I arrived a few minutes early and there was a long line outside the Guidance office.
I wondered what the boys were cuing for. “Good afternoon, Mam”.
I walked into my room and the Guidance Head announced, “The boys are ready for you!”
They seized my moment!
Either way, I hope I lived it well.
