The Old Man At The Hospital

Today’s Remembering Your Spirit is a short story written by a doctor. Author unknown but the ending is really heart warming.

The Old Man At The Hospital

At 8.30, a man in his 80s arrived at the hospital. He was in a hurry, he had an appointment at 9 o’clock.

I asked if he had another doctor’s appointment. He said he had to go to the nursing home to have breakfast with his wife, who had Alzheimers. I asked if she would be upset if he was late.

He replied that she no longer knew who he was. She had not recognised him in five years.

“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.”

This is a story that really highlights the essence of true, unconditional love – a bit like the movie The Notebook, based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks. If you like this story, share it with your loved ones using the buttons at the top and bottom of this post.

To Unconditional Love,
