Lots of Hearts
(A happy stepping stone in the evolution of my recent sunset photo warping frenzy)
My brother sent to this to me today, I thought it was sweet and a nice message for a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I don’t know who wrote it, but it makes me think of my Uncle Al (who’s still alive and feisty at 98 years old) and his wife, my Aunt Gladys, who died years ago from Alzheimer’s.  She didn’t get to meet my daughter Andi, but her birthday is next week, the same day as Andi’s birthday.  I still marvel at that synchronicity!
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..

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.

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

The 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

Have a beautiful Sunday!
