Dancing 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 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 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.

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.
