An Unexpected Gift Found Within Our Terminal Story
Your loved one is at the bus terminal of life—their journey on this earth isn’t over. At a transition point from their healthy past life, to their eternal home waiting in the unforeseen future. This terminal we should not fear. Many people don't get to ever sit at this transition point with their loved ones, never getting the opportunity to “gather ’round” one last time. To listen. To laugh. To learn. So many loved ones never get to wait patiently on the bench of life, enjoying this sweet sliver of time together. This terminal is a gift to us. Hard? Yes. Are tears shed? Many. Do we wish we could take them off the bench and firmly place them back to their past life? Definitely. However, we can choose to see this “terminal” as a gift; space where we can share memories of the past, show love in the present, and hold hands as we wait for the bus headed to their eternal home. Today the word "terminal" can become one of the greatest blessings God could ever give. It was for me and my mom and can be for you too.
Our hope is that this community will be one of the redemptive pieces of your terminal story.
"I am thankful my mom didn't lose her hair despite the chemo pumped into her body."
"I am thankful for people who have lost loved ones before me. They know how this time really feels."
"I am thankful that I could identify small blessings along the way. It helped brighten the dark moments."
"In the end my mom taught me that a mother's love continues long after she is gone."
