8:30, a man in his 80s arrived at the hospital. He was in a hurry, he had an appt at 9:00. I asked if he had another doctors appt. He said he had to go to the nursing home for breakfast with his wife, a victim of Alzheimers. I asked if shed be upset he was late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, she had not recognized him in 5 yrs. I asked, ‘And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’ He smiled and said, ‘She doesn't know me, but I still know her.’
I know everyone says you rarely keep your friends from high school but I really feel like my best friends now will still be my best friends when I get married and even in 30 or even 50 years from now!!! I have faith in them and I love them to death!!!!!!!
Do not sell yourself out for anything less than magical, anything less than aggravating and passionate. Do not sell yourself short in love because in this we find a happiness that we can carry with us to our graves.
