As the campus buzzes with excitement for this weekend’s annual Christmas events, residents are found out and about enjoying the temperate climate and seasonal scores of poinsettias, lights and decor. Gazing across the campus there is a mixture of unique scenes.
A lighthearted giggle finds two kindred souls tucked away in reminiscent conversation. As the porch swing sways, their cheeks glow from candid conversation and bursts of laughter. A foot balancing the tip of a shoe dangles as the tales rise and fall in delightful whispers of contentment.
Looking further out, there is solace found witnessing another along the winding paths. His furrowed brow indicates a quiet reflection. Deep thoughts are evidenced in his purposeful stride, and one can only imagine the recollection of vivid details streaming, as the years play back in his memory. He dons a veteran’s cap, shielding eyes filled with pride and resolve. A gentle wind redirects his gaze toward calm waters of the river, and his stature submits to a wave of contentment.

No longer burdened by fear in her efforts to live alone, she now enjoys the confidence of independence, and embraces the freedom to thrive again. As she’s escorted off, her eyes meet his in thankful celebration, and the pride swelled in his chest is exhaled in contentment.
