True Love….

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……. 

The Rain

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

Before someone 

Would to able to see him.

I saw him looking at his watch and

Decided, since I 
Was not busy with another patient,

I would evaluate his wound.

On exam, it was 
Well healed, so I talked to one of the

Doctors, got the needed supplies to 

Remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of
His wound, I asked him if he

Had another doctor’s appointment

This morning, as 
He was in such a hurry.
The gentleman told me no, that he

Needed to go to 
The nursing home to eat breakfast

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.
As we
Talked, I asked if she would be

Upset if he was a bit late. 
Replied that she no longer knew

Who he was, that she had not

Recognized him in 
Five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him,

‘And you still go every 
Morning, even though she

Doesn’t know who you are?’ 
He smiled as he
Patted my hand and said,

‘She doesn’t 

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,

‘That is 

The kind of love I want in my life.’ 
True love is 
Neither physical, nor romantic.

True love is an 

Acceptance of all that is,

Has been, will be, and will not 

With all the jokes 
And fun that are in e-mails,

Sometimes there is one that comes

Along that has an 

Important message..

This one I thought I could share with you.
Happiest people don’t necessarily

Have the best of everything;

They just make 
The best of everything they have.

‘Life isn’t about 

How to survive the storm,
But how to dance

In the rain.’

We are all getting Older

Tomorrow may be our turn.
