A Lovely Morning Message !

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 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'.

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.

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything ; 
they just make the best of everything they have.

Motivating Morning Poem !!

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high !

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that

I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

Make the Best Use of Every Moment !

Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. 
Never ask for a lighter rain.
Just pray for a better umbrella. That is attitude. 

Life is not about finding the right person, 
but creating the right relationship, 
it's not how we care in the beginning, 
but how much we care till ending. 

Often when we lose all hope and think this is the end, 
God smiles from above and says, 
relax dear its just a bend. Not the end. 
Have Faith and  have a successful life.

One of the basic differences between God and human is,
God gives,  gives and forgives. 
But human gets, gets, gets and forgets.
Be thankful in life! 

Only two types of persons are happy in this world.
1st is Mad and 2nd is Child. 
Be Mad to achieve what you desire and
be a Child to enjoy what you have achieved!

Never play with the feelings of others 
because you may win the game 
but the risk is that you will surely 
loose the person for life time.

Cool Morning Feelings !!

Not what we say about our blessings, 
but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. 

~   W.T. Purkiser               (THANKSGIVING SPECIAL)

We can always find something to be thankful for, 
and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations
which appear dark and frowning.  

~   Albert Barnes                (THANKSGIVING SPECIAL)

Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings 
than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.  

~   A.W. Tozer
