    Default Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!

    It was a busy
    morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman, probably 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 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 health.

    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.

    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, 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 be.

    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.

    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.'

    Every one is getting Older

    make the best of your LIFE.
