Description

This is a mother writing about the people and major events in her life.

The book began as a legacy for my children with prayer-poems which I

have been writing for twenty years for my family's prayer-before-dinner

each Thanksgiving. Each family member has a verse written about their year.



On 9/11, I was working at New York-Presbyterian Hospital when the Towers

were hit and my staff hurriedly prepared our Intensive Care Unit to receive

victims. The horrible event resulted in the writing of a passionate poem which

also is included.



The deaths of three family members resulted in the writing of three elegies and

a troubled period of life resulted in a lengthy passionate work.



Spirituality and famiy history are the primary themes of the book. The book

follows an enlarging family as it has grown and developed over twenty years.

A number of works are devoted to solemn subjects, reflecting spirituality. There

are a total of 22 poems. The poems are diverse, many are solemn, some are

sacred, two are passionate and the Thanksgiving verses are true-to-life.
