She has said to me within the last month.....
" Where is my typewriter? I need to "clip off" some letters to people."
" I'd love to get back in the classroom again to teach."
" I'm thinking of asking [them] if I can put together a Christmas choir but wouldn't want to start something I couldn't finish."
"I know you've had such a rough day at work; could I fix you a nice meal tomorrow?"
I don't say much, just listen and acknowledge. In some ways, it may be healthy that we never give up our dreams for if we do, there is nothing.
