An 80-year-old man insists every morning on bringing his wife breakfast in the nursing home. When asked “Why is his wife in a retirement home?” His reply shocked everyone.
Sometimes in life, we come across someone and realize instantly that they are the person we want to spend the rest of our lives with. Unfortunately, not everyone is fortunate enough to find their soulmate on their journey through life. So when you do, make sure to hold onto that person tightly and never let go.
One morning, an elderly gentleman of 80 years brought breakfast and flowers to his wife, who resided in a nursing home. A passerby who observed him doing this each day inquired about his wife and why she was staying at the facility. The man revealed that his wife had Alzheimer’s.
Curious, the passerby asked the elderly man, “Would your wife be concerned if one day you didn’t bring her breakfast?” The man replied, “She doesn’t remember. She hasn’t recognized me for the past five years.”
The person was taken aback and inquired further, “Then why do you bring her breakfast every day, even though she doesn’t even know who you are?” The devoted husband smiled and responded, “She may not recognize me, but I know who she is.”
This has truly touched our hearts to the core.
