About the Book

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.
