Yeah I finally got it. yeah I finally got it.... Yes i  deliberately delayed today's lesson of the week wanted to know if anybody looks forward to it or its just an OP's venture and yes I got like five mails from TLBers asking if wasn't going to put up lesson of the week. Yah the number of mail is small but it made me smile knowing that people are actually enjoying what i do.
*Kisses to you all *

So here's it.

I Still Know Who She Is..

It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman 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. I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided since I wasn’t busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.
On examining it I saw it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors and 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! As she is 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. Peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank.
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the the best use of everything.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs.But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Almighty God, you will make it to a place called Success.

Thanks to the TLBer who sent this to me. God bless you real good..
