An open apology.
To the person dropping off your mother/wife/friend at the Berkeley Pavilion sidewalk last week, please accept my apology.
I am so sorry for acting impatiently and with no thought of support. I did not realize you were dropping someone off at the clinic until I was already rushing past. Then, being in my already over-reactive state of mind, I hit the gas to show my disapproval of you blocking my way.
It was completely inappropriate.
As a fellow caregiver, I know how hard it is to find parking, to get close, to be on time.
I was running from the hospital, yet again, for things I forgot to bring. Feels like there is never enough time for anything.
I am sorry. It was a wake-up call to remember the necessity of kindness.
A. Hannah, White Rock
