  6. 6. But being ‘in love’ is different from loving all those around you. Love is very difficult to describe. <br />This subtle feeling may occur because of a single look, smell, words, voice or appearance. <br />
  7. 7. When you are in love you will feel a strong bond between you and the other person. You will always be on the look out for this person. <br />

  12. 12. From a surgeon’s <br />Point of narration.<br />
  13. 13. It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s, arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. <br />
  14. 14. He said he was in a hurry as he had another appointment at 9:00 am. I signed him in, asked him to take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him.<br />
  15. 15. I saw him glance at his watch, and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I could evaluate his wound. On examination, I saw it was well healed, so I removed his sutures and <br />redressed the wound.<br />
  16. 16. While dressing his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman replied no, but he needed to go to the nursing home to have breakfast with his dear wife.<br />
  17. 17. I proceeded to inquire about his wife’s health. He told me that she had been there for a while! <br />As she is a <br />victim of Alzheimer’s disease.<br />
  18. 18. 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, and that she had not recognized him in five years now.<br />
  19. 19. I was surprised and asked him, “And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?”<br />
  20. 20. He smiled as he patted my hand and said, “She doesn’t know me but I still know who she is.” <br />
  21. 21. I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm and thought;<br />“That is the kind of love I want in my life. True love may neither be physical nor romantic... to last”<br />
  22. 22. "Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning buthow much love you build till the end."<br />
  23. 23. What then is LOVE?<br />
  24. 24. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has <br />been, will be, <br />and will not be.<br />The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.<br />
  25. 25. Christian religion<br />gave a satisfying<br />definition of LOVE.<br />It probably covers all one may need to grow in... <br />
  26. 26.
  27. 27. “LOVE is Patience and Endurance” <br />
  28. 28. “LOVE is Caring and Loving <br /> regardless of adversity” <br />
  29. 29. “LOVE protects”<br />
