It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's arrived to have stitchesremoved 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 wouldto 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, gotthe 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 hewas in such a hurry.The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. Iinquired 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 whoyou are?'He smiled as he patted my hand and said, 'She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.' I had tohold 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.With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has animportant message. This one I thought I could share with you.The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everythingthey have .I hope you share this with someone you care about. I just did. 'Life isn' t about how to survive thestorm, but how to dance in the rain.'If you can't be a pencil to write anyone's happiness, try at least to be a nice rubber to erase everyone'ssorrows…
The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than afew days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste.To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fishand freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanesecould taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish.The frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companiesinstalled fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a littlethrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive. Unfortunately, theJapanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste. The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish.So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem?How did they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan?If you were consulting the fish industry, what would you recommend?How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh:To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks. But nowthey add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a verylively state. The fish are challenged.Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired & dull, so weneed a Shark in our life to keep us awake and moving?Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us active and taste better...The more intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a challenge. If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are steadily conquering those challenges, you are Conqueror.You think of your challenges and get energized. You are excited to try new solutions...
An emperor in the Far East was growing old and knew it was time to choose his successor. Instead of choosing one of his assistants or his children, he decided something different. He called young peoplein the kingdom together one day. He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next emperor.I have decided to choose one of you."The kids were shocked! But the emperor continued. "I am going to give each one of you a seed today.One very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it and come back here after one year fromtoday with what you have grown from this one seed. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and theone I choose will be the next emperor!"One boy named Ling was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home andexcitedly told his mother the story. She helped him get a pot and planting soil, and he planted the seedand watered it carefully. Every day he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about threeweeks, some of the other youths began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning togrow.Ling kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks went by. Still nothing.By now, others were talking about their plants but Ling didn't have a plant, and he felt like a failure. Sixmonths went by, still nothing in Ling's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed.Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Ling didn't say anything to his friends,however. He just kept waiting for his seed to grow.A year finally went by and all the youths of the kingdom brought their plants to the emperor for inspection. Ling told his mother that he wasn't going to take an empty pot. But honest about whathappened, Ling felt sick to his stomach, but he knew his mother was right.He took his empty pot to the palace. When Ling arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other youths. They were beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Ling put his empty pot on the floor andmany of the other kinds laughed at him. A few felt sorry for him and just said, "Hey nice try."When the emperor arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted the young people. Ling just tried to hidein the back. "What great plants, trees and flowers you have grown," said the emperor. "Today, one of you will be appointed the next emperor!" All of a sudden, the emperor spotted Ling at the back of theroom with his empty pot. He ordered his guards to bring him to the front. Ling was terrified. "Theemperor knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me killed!"
