The Perfect Patient

Today I met the most gracious patient.

He smiled when I entered, laughed at my lame jokes, complemented all of the staff,  denied any complaints, and asked for me to visit him again.

He has Stage IV cancer undergoing chemo and radiation.

And I smiled back leaving a little more humble.

A seed trapped in a spider's web discovered in a creek beside my street

"Be it with a stone, God or anyone else,
There comes not tranquility without loving

The heart is the ocean of love; love is its act,
Guard it a thousand ways; it will still fall in love"
