    It means loving your spouse even when Alzheimer's has turned his brain into that of a toddler...taking him to dances when he can't remember how to dance so he can smile at friendly faces..taking him for walks in snow and rain because he loves to be out in nature...and telling him you like to help him so you can show him how much you love him as you crawl under the stall in a public restroom to clean up the mess. It's a new kind of love, but it's just as real.

     Well written Marilyn, it surely meant Agape the Greek word.

     Thank you, Marilyn for LOVING in this most REAL way!  This is what it's all about!  Feelings aside, the core of love is commitment.  Your rewards have yet to come!  Blessings to a very special one!
