A Gift from afriend.

Which he found on teh web. 


It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. 
 He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00.

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 examining it I saw it was well healed, 
 so I talked to one of the doctors and 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 health.
 He told me that she had been there for a while! 
 As she is a victim of Alzheimer’s disease.
As we talked,
 I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. 
 He 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
 I still know who she is.’ 
the love of my life 
 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, 
will not be.
Peace is seeing a sunset
 and knowing who to thank. 
 The happiest people don’t necessarily 
 have the best of everything; 
 they just make the best of everything 
 they have.
I hope you share this with someone
 you care about, 
 I just did. 
Life isn’t about how to survive 
 the storm 
but how to dance 
 in the rain.

The road to success 
is not straight. 
 There is a curve called Failure, 
 loop called Confusion, 
 speed bumps called Friends, 
 red lights called Enemies, 
 caution lights called Family. 
 You will have flats 
 called Jobs.
But, if you have a spare
 called Determination, 
 engine called Perseverance, 
 insurance called Faith, 
 a driver called 
 Almighty God, 
 you will make it to a place 
 called Success.
