A pariah to all who knew her, this bitter, lonely old woman, had been exiled to a nursing home by her only son, who despised her. She spent most of her time crying tears of torment and pain, wondering why she had ever been born.

Her days were spent lashing out at everyone she saw, until Audrey started working there. Then, unlike everyone else, no matter how horribly she treated her, Audrey responded with lovingkindness. And now, as she gazed at her through teary eyes, her heart melted as Audrey whispered, “I love you,” handing her a single red rose.
