In This Month's Edition

In This Edition March: Compassion - is it a noun or a verb?  Is it who we are, or what we do?  When you “Google” the word for its definition, the consistent description is that compassion is a feeling.  A feeling, I suppose, is a thing, so if compassion is a feeling…then it is a noun.   Another definition for compassion, thanks to “Professor Google” states that compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental, or emotional pains of another and themselves.   Whether it is a noun, verb or any other grammatical definition that makes grade school feel like a lifetime ago, there is no doubt that this edition of The Journey Journals shows how to live by showing that compassion.  

    Home Hospice Association volunteers are compassionate caregivers who go out of their way every day to ease the suffering for those for whom a cure is no longer possible.  Compassion is how we treat each other, treat our communities and treat our clients, and none of this happens without the dedication of each volunteer. 

   Self-compassion is also something that we continue to remind each other about - we all know the saying “you cannot drink from an empty cup”.   And during this unprecidented time even more so.  It is my hope that each of you are taking this time to care for yourself and that those you hold dear are safe.

Great Things are Happening!
