I love this definition of grace. When my mother inlaw was dying from cancer she epitomized grace. Because it had traveled to her brain she lost the ability to speak, but she would smile at you and you knew she was still there and full of love, she still gave freely.
When we had to bathe her and change her, she still smiled and received gratefully and because of her grace we didn’t feel like we were taking away her dignity.
She accepted what was – she didn’t rail against the injustice, but accepted that this was her path to travel.
She considered others and made us feel loved.
It was an amazing gift of grace that she gave to us and I will always treasure that I was there to help take care of her, she was truly my mother.
So the most amazing gift that you can give yourself and others is to live your life with this kind of grace. I don’t know that I suceed, but I try to return the gift that she gave me to everyone that I meet.
