How to Dance in 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 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.  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!!
