“Moving On” — a yarn about knowing when to let go

The short film “Moving On” touched me both as a daughter who made care choices for dying parents, and as a metastatic lung cancer patient who is likely facing death sooner rather than later. It’s especially poignant since I spent yesterday in a workshop about palliative care and end of life. I needed several tissues after the subtle headshake, yet the tears were cathartic.

I pray all of us and our loved ones will  make the most of whatever time we have together, and know when it’s time to let go of the yarn — whether for ourselves or for those in our care.

Please remember to touch and be touched by your loved ones before the yarn is all gone.
