There was an elderly, despondent woman in a nursing home. She wouldn't speak to anyone or request anything. She merely existed--rocking in her creaky old rocking chair. The old woman didn't have many visitors. But every couple mornings, a concerned young nurse would go into her room. She didn't try to speak or ask questions. She simply pulled up another rocking chair beside the old woman and rocked with her. Weeks later, the old woman finally spoke. "Thank you," she said, "for rocking with me."
