    True Love = It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s arrived at the hospital to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. The nurse 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 was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talke...

    It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s arrived at the hospital to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. The nurse 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 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.’ ...(yes, i'm crying!.) #truelove

Spending time with the elderly is priceless. They are the best teachers; the most wise souls. Pour me a cuppa tea and tell me stories dear, wise old sweetheart.

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough… … Nicholas Sparks

old people in love is something we see frequently now. But that those old people fell in love when it wasn't okay to just leave each other when things got hard. If it's broken they fix it. I fear that in 50 years we won't see old people in love like this who have been together forever.

when my husband and i first got together, he made me a mix cd with the song "grow old with you" by adam sandler. this reminds me of that. ♥

We should get this sign for work. So cute. Lol

Elderly people inspire me in so many lives. And they have so much character! -Sian

I want my love to last and grow deeper through the years. We will work through the fights and the kids and the troubles and discover and re-discover the quirks and peeves and idiosyncrasies that we have and there will always be affection when we touch.
