I have a friend in hospital. 

Today was picture day – dropping off some photos.

As I approached the front door of the hospital, the hospital administrator approached me with a question regarding our spiritual care committee.  Quick thoughts were exchanged and I headed in the door. 

Said “hi” to nursing staff – took a quick look into some rooms to see who had been discharged.  Dropped off the photos.  Headed back down past the reception desk and said “hi” to the receptionist.  Then back to my car.

All on a holiday afternoon.

Life is comprised of those times when life is . . . regardless of how things are linked to work or volunteer activities or friends or the world around us.  Sometimes to compartmentalize life helps to decide work hours or achievement but in the end, is life about power, wealth or people?  I choose the side of people.
