As my husband recovers from his fifth surgery in the past year, I am struggling to keep up with life’s obligations: the shadow. He’s doing as well as can be expected, but I am not used to doing all the driving, shopping, cooking and caring. As tired as I am, I can’t help but reflect on how the tables have turned, and wonder how gracious of a patient I have or have not been these past years, while he has cared for me.
Just when you think you’ve understood one of life’s challenges, there is always another one on its heels. Shadows and reflections.
