As I finish packing to return home this morning, I would like to reflect on something
A human breaths
16 / minute
960 / hour
23,040 / day
8,409,600 / year
Grace and I have accomplished quite a bit this week, as I prepare to leave I reflect, everything done was already thought through, I accompanied her several places, but mostly kept her company. Remarkable strength for someone who is facing death, loss of a spouse and best friend.
Many believe she was incapable because Dennis did so much for her, but we all fail to realize what she has done for Dennis for 47 years.
Sure we chuckled at her posts about not pumping gas, of not cooking much, Denny this Denny that, what she did not post was her contribution to this institution of marriage, friendship and partnership.
We laughed a bit, kept comfortable silence as we visited but most importantly we waited.
So as I pack and await my ride to the airport, I came to Arizona to wait for one breath, Dennis Horton's last.
He has not taken it yet, so now I will wait for a phone call of Dennis's last breath.
Thanks for stopping by.... until I return
