One of our favorite dinner mates was a woman with advanced cerebal palsy. Her caregiver had to put every bite of food into her mouth. She could not talk to us at all, but she could give a happy, friendly look to each of us and she did. I talked to her caregiver on deck one day and she told me that the woman had always fantasized about a cruise and finally decided to just do it. Her courage and determination to follow her dream and make it a reality has always given me a boost when I need it.
