How to Dance in the Rain

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

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 arms, 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.

With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has an important message. This is one of those.

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

I hope you share this with someone you care about. I just did.

‘Life isn’t about how to survive the storm,

but how to dance in the rain

Thanks for the reminder, Kristi!

The Cremated Husband

Betty lost her husband George three weeks ago. She had him cremated and brought his ashes home and kept them on the end table.

The other day she picked up the urn and went out to the patio.

She sat down at the patio table and poured him out on the table.

She sat there looking at the ashes while tracing her fingers in them.

After a few minutes she started talking to the ashes.

‘George, you know that dishwasher you promised me? I bought it with the insurance money!’

She paused for a minute tracing her fingers in the ashes then said,’George, remember that car you promised me? Well, I also bought it with the insurance money!’

Again, she paused for a few minutes and while tracing her fingers in the ashes she said, ‘George, that diamond ring you promised me?

Bought it too, with the insurance money!’

Finally, still tracing her fingers in the ashes, She said, ‘George,remember that blow job I promised you?’

‘Here it comes.’

Thanks to my good friend, Pam for this one! Too funny!

A man left for work one Friday afternoon. But, being payday, instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spending his entire paycheck.
When He finally appeared at home, Sunday Night, he was confronted by a very angry wife and was barraged for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions.
Finally his wife stopped the nagging and simply said to him. ‘How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?’
To which he replied. ‘That would be fine with me.’
Monday went by and he didn’t see his wife. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.
Come Thursday, the swelling went down just enough where he could see her a little out of the corner of his left eye!

The answer is: What is a real mother………

MOTHERS……………………………………………………..

Real Mothers don’t eat quiche; they don’t have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids

Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn’t come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don’t want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometimes ask ‘Why me?’ and get their answer when a little voice says, ‘Because I love you best.’

Real Mothers know that a child’s growth is not measured by height or years or grade…It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother..

Ouch, that hurt!……….this joke sizzles…..

A wealthy man came home from a gambling trip and told his wife that he had lost their entire fortune and that they’d have to drastically alter their life-style.

“If you’ll just learn to cook,” he said, “we can fire the chef.”

“Okay,” she said. “And if you learn how to make love, we can fire the gardener.”

Funny…Laugh time…Smile……

A dietitian was once addressing a large audience in Chicago.
“The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago.
Red meat is awful. Soft drinks erode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.
But, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and most all of us have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?”
A 75-year-old man in the front row stood up and said, “Wedding cake.”

A Wife’s Revenge……..

Too Funny!

An old italian man and woman were married for years even though
they hated each other. When they had a confrontation, screams and
yelling could be heard deep into the night. A constant statement
was heard by the neighbors who feared the man the most. “When I die
I will dig my way up and out of the grave to come back and haunt you
for the rest of your life!” They believed he practiced black magic
and was responsible for missing cats and dogs, and strange sounds at
all hours. He was feared and enjoyed the respect it garnished.
He died abruptly under strange circumstances and the funeral had a
closed casket. After the burial, the wife went straight to the local
bar and began to party as if there was no tomorrow. The gaiety of her
actions were becoming extreme while her neighbors approached in a
group to ask these questions: “Are you not worried? Concerned? Afraid
of this man who practiced black magic and stated when he died he would
dig his way up and out of the grave to come back and haunt you for
the rest of your life?” The wife put down her drink and said…”let
the old bastard dig. I had him buried upside down.”
