The Notebook

Sometimes just a subtle click of the TV remote can give us the kick-in-the-pants that we require to remember what life may look like to those aging around us. The issue with them though is that they may have forgotten how their life changed as they aged.
I happened upon The Notebook, written by Nicholas Sparks and followed up with the 2004 movie that was directed by Nick Cassavetes (Screenplay written by Jan Sardi and Jeremy Levin). The movie depicts the love affair of Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling). By the time the movie ends, the couple (now James Garner and Gena Rowlands) is going through the throes of Allie having Alzeimer’s disease. Their love does not die, just hides in the recesses of Allie’s mind, but in order to remind her of the love that is still there, she penned their story for Noah to read to her so that she could make her way back to him.
If only….
It certainly would be nice if each client had the capability to do this; to live the life that they knew once before by having it repeated to them over and over again.
That is what I believe my presence is for; to help those struggling through their golden years. I should be the one to show them that With Age Comes Respect by helping them retrieve what is left of their memories. I should be there to help them follow through!
