When I read this touching story I realized I had to stay with Spark People no matter what, even if I am not doing well. I can offer encouragement and understanding. We need each other as much as that dying man needed a son. I know I can't do it alone. Ty for sharing that awesome story

Thank you for sharing this. I just read it. If you don't mind I'd like to email it to my Hero,my old Army buddy, my mate, my best friend, my ex, and my soul mate. He's all of that to me. And he is a truly spiritual person. We have always been there for each other no matter how many miles were between us. As a Veteran, myself, I appreciate you posting this.

For for dyed eggs, how about doing deviled eggs for supper using Chef Meg's recipe?

That's a beautiful story! It seems that the funny and depressing stories are the ones you hear the most. Even worse are the horribly sappy ones designed to make you cry. I like stories like this that are beautiful, simple, human experiences where people have made the lives of others better without thanks or expectation.

When I served my Country a few years back, we were family, my servicemates and I. We were there for each other before all else. Sure, we had a job to do, but our duty to each other came first.

Thanks for sharing that story emoticon !

This was posted on another team's site and I thought I would share with you.

Just Stay

A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.

'Your son is here,' she said to the old man.

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.

He was heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.

The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.
He refused. Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients.

Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.

Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.

Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her.

'Who was that man?' he asked.
The nurse was startled, 'He was your father,' she answered.
'No, he wasn't,' the Marine replied. 'I never saw him before in my life.'

'Then why didn't you say something when I took you to him?'

'I knew right away there had been a mistake,
but I also knew he needed his son, and his
son just wasn't here.
When I realized that he was too sick to tell
whether or not I was his son,
knowing how much he needed me, I stayed.'

The next time someone needs you ... just be there. Stay.

**************
WE ARE NOT HUMAN BEINGS GOING THROUGH A
TEMPORARY SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE.

WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS GOING THROUGH A TEMPORARY
HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
AMEN
