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 family 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.
