I received this today and I though you guys might appreciate it as much as I did





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.

He said no, he needed to go to the nursing home to eat
breakfast with
his wife.

I inquired as to her health.
He told me& nbsp;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 she no longer knew who he was, 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.
