It's true, life does get busy. But what really saddens me, is the fact that a Dr. says to a patient that they were too busy to visit them while they were in the hospital. Compassion seems to have went by the wayside. Sometimes a simple, "Checking in, how are you today?" is all that is needed. So would someone enlighten me as to why this is so difficult to do?
I know it can be uncomfortable when someone is ill. We don't know what to say, how we should say things and if we should keep our mouth shut. If that's the case, send a card, text message or something that shows you care.
I have said it time and time again.... the North Iowa Bloggers get along better than the ladies in the church kitchen. And man, has this experience shown me that. The North Iowa Bloggers and several members of the North Iowa Social Media Breakfast Club are the most compassionate group of people that I know. They are cheering our fellow blogger on through cards, flowers, text messages and occasional visits.
Which brings me to compassion. Where are her church people? Myself and another North Iowa Blogger have alerted the church that she has been ill for quite sometime. She did receive a visit from her Pastor, but I am pondering, where are all the people that make up the church? It's interesting how busy bloggers and members of the North Iowa Social Media Breakfast Club are finding time to visit. Something to ponder.
I am thrilled to have found such a compassionate group of people in North Iowa.
This whole ordeal has left me rethinking the church as a whole. This may also explain why so many people are leaving the church in droves. When basic compassion is lacking, where's a person to turn? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
