Humbled

I'm moved by the privilege of being with people and invited to create sacred space with them.
I dragged myself out of bed, and over to a nursing home for their service (incidentally, very interested in the thread on FWD/Forward at the moment about such places) only to discover that the staff hadn't let people know about it. And allegedly, no-one wanted to come because there was a Valentine's Day entertainment thing going on. Cue annoyance. But there was one resident who would appreciate a room visit.
An incredible woman, with a deep faith. Whose great-grandparents fled the pogroms in Europe, and eventually ended up in Australia. To be invited to hear her story, to reflect with her on faith and God ... I'm overwhelmed with gratitude.
And yet she thanked me. I've come away feeling that she gave me a far greater gift than I gave her, I wish I'd been able to help her see that.
