Morning Musings

Today's blog post is going to be a bit different. I'm going to give you a glimpse into my head. It will be much more personal, so fair warning.

When I woke this morning, I had a song stuck in my head. It wasn't just any song, and it wasn't just the song either. I was remembering a funeral that I attended a few years ago. The deceased young man was a former patient, that I hadn't seen in several years. Since the funeral was held at a church near to us, the office staff and I were able to attended. The song in my head was one we sang as a congregation at the funeral called "I Will Rise" by Chris Tomlin. As I was quietly singing this in the shower, I reminisced. He was my patient before I was as focused on health and wellness. He came to me for aches and pains, for which I helped him, and then he left my care. I didn't know what happened to him since then. I don't know if he got sick. I don't know if he suffered. Those thought were a burden on my heart. There was no way I would ever know if I could have helped him. Nobody knows how long anyone else will live. What I do know, with certainty, is that getting people healthier will allow them to add life to the years they have left. Thanks for the memory. - Dr. Moss
