My Teacher My Dad

Posted: November 22, 2018 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys, Personal Thoughts & Reflections

88 year old man loses his balance and falls while trying to close the windows in the kitchen, because it is raining at 3am+ He does so as quietly as he can, so as not to wake his wife and daughter. But then he falls with a loud thud and fractures his hip. His wife is awakened by the loud sound. He is found helpless on the floor in pain till his daughter helps him back to bed.

Why dad did you bother? It’s only rain!

But when I look back I remember my teacher of how to serve without complaint. To move to love first in spite of tiredness and pains. As a child he cared for me tenderly when I was ill. I will never forget! His healing hands he would lay upon us and give us comfort. He was patient as he was kind. Dad I pray that Jesus lays His healing hands upon you, just as you had done for us and others. Amen
