As I begin this hospice journey, I am beginning to review what this journey’s meant to me. Help me to recognize that as this life is ending, a new one is beginning. Help me to enjoy every minute I have left. Help my friends and family’s grief journey be brief and painless. Help them take heart in the knowledge that they made all the difference. Help me to celebrate the blessings and be grateful for both the good and the bad. Help me thank those who are deserving of thanks and forgiving to those who have hurt me. Help those I may have hurt forgive me. Forgive me for my transgressions and enable me to forgive myself. Remind me to be grateful for this journey and let go of any remorse. Help me make this final crossing with grace; and welcome me into Your heavenly abode in peace surrounded by Your love, light and healing. Amen.
