My last post was a tribute to my mom, who passed away two years ago. Spending a lot of time with her in the hospital before she died reminded me of what a sad and wonderful place a hospital can be; a place where profound suffering and profound compassion often embrace.
Recently I discovered an extraordinary blog. I’m not exaggerating. Danielle is a med student who may have missed her calling as a writer. A blog this good makes me realize I have no business blogging. I should be doing something that I can do well, like cleaning toilets.
This sad, sweet story is just one example of the beautiful and gut-wrenching reflections you’ll find at Danielle’s blog. (If you’ve already read that story, it’s probably because Tim Challies linked to it last week.)
How would I describe Danielle’s blog? Honest. Witty. Wise. Sad. Compassionate. Intelligent. Articulate. Poignant. Occasionally funny. Always well-written. I could go on. Trust me, it’s a great blog. So what are you still doing here?
