I received this from a friend and wanted to share….and I hope you’ll share this with someone you care about.
Live with laughter and love with all your heart…….
It was a busy
Morning, about 8:30, when an elderly
Gentleman in his 80’s arrived to have
Stitches removed from his thumb.
He said he was in a hurry as he had an
Appointment at 9:00 am.
I took his vital
Signs and had him take a seat,
Knowing it would be over an hour
Would to able to see him.
I saw him looking at his watch and
Decided, since I
I would evaluate his wound.
On exam, it was
Doctors, got the needed supplies to
Remove his sutures and redress his wound.
While taking care of
Had another doctor’s appointment
This morning, as
Needed to go to
With his wife. I inquired as to her
He told me that she had been there
For a while and that she
Was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Upset if he was a bit late.
Who he was, that she had not
Recognized him in
I was surprised, and asked him,
‘And you still go every
Doesn’t know who you are?’
Know me, but I still know who she is.’
I had to hold back
Tears as he left, I had goose bumps
On my arm, and thought,
The kind of love I want in my life.’
True love is an
Acceptance of all that is,
Has been, will be, and will not
With all the jokes
Sometimes there is one that comes
Along that has an
This one I thought I could share with you.
Have the best of everything;
They just make
‘Life isn’t about
How to survive the storm,
In the rain.’
We are all getting Older
Tomorrow may be our turn.
