Mama

SmallLogo Today our Phoenix West Threshold Choir sang in a hospice care unit for a young man who was profoundly disabled.  We weren’t even sure he could hear us, and if so, if he was listening.

After the first song he reached up to touch my face and I let him.  He stroked my cheek and said “Mama” with a peaceful look on his face.

I kept thinking I had to hold my emotions in check and continue to gift him with song, which we did.

“Spirit’s made a place for you, where everything is new.”  

(–Melanie DeMore)

As we walked out, the tears burst forth.

Who was gifting whom?
