True Love

I found this in my email in box and wanted to share it with others.
Author unknown...

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.

Those who belong to the recognized faiths demand that the control of their obedience rests on leak, and that pronouncement is given in the pages of books and accounts of miracles and wonders whose features is supernatural. But those of us who have protracted discarded the credence in the miraculous still are in the coolness of revelations which are the base of faith. We too partake of our revealed religion. We accept looked upon the clock of men and women that can be to us the symbols of that which is holy. We have heard words of divine reason and facts in fact oral in the possibly manlike voice. In sight of the domain there have hit to us these experience which, when accepted, give to us revelations, not of supernatural creed, but of a natural and inevitable certitude in the clerical powers that animated and live in the center of [a themselves's] being.
