I don't often read about religion, but I did yesterday. In the Boston Globe in the My Faith section, it was called "What people talk about before they die" by Kerry Eagan, a hospice chaplain. I thought this quote of hers was interesting. "We don't live our lives in our heads, in theology and theories. We live our lives in our families we are born into, the families we create, the families we make through the people we choose as friends." She talks about what love is and how the dying have experienced it. She shares the words of those that have lived a life of imperfect love or with little at all. Some stories out of the blue stop me in my tracks. This one did yesterday.
