A Hope for Love

"I would like my picture taken so that I can give it to the boy that sits next to me."

This was said to me by a woman suffering from Alzheimers'. I can only hope that on this day she was not suffering but dreaming of love, a first love. She felt new and fresh and full of hope for a love between a boy and a girl. This I hope!

What a lovely post. I too hope she was dreaming of love. whether it was new or an old one remembered as new. And what a lovely person you must be. Hope you took the picture.
