What Is Love?

With gratitude to Aggie Catholics for passing this on!


  1. This reminds me of a couple of my nursing home residents a while back. The wife had Alzheimer's and was pretty much mentally gone, but physically she could do anything. The husband was completely mentally there but he was wheelchair bound because of a stroke. They worked together however and together made for a fairly independent nursing home couple. He'd tell her what to do, breaking it down into small steps and being patient with her if she didn't do things quite right. She'd push him to and from the dining room and do what she could to help him. It was a beautiful sight.

  2. Beth:

    I do not think you could have composed a more powerful written description of the value and dignity of human life.

    Thanks for sharing and taking the time to comment.
