A tribute from me a mother, sister, daughter,educator, and friend; supporter of Peace, Justice and Liberty!
Today I helped my church by making three floral arrrangements and baking up a storm of delectable sweets and treats for the memorial service and coffee hour. Here are a few pics to share with you.

Forever America Remembers 9 - 11
A solemn day filled with prayers and memories, well spent time with my new friends at church.
I did the remembrance walk and attended the town ceremonies. Ou town fire department received an artifact from the Trade Towers, not sure how I feel about that, but it was nice jus the same. Several politicians attended and spoke at the local memorial service as well as walked in the memorial walk... While in process all the firefighters of three towns were called into action for a fire.. doing what all first responders do... please pause and say a prayer for all those whose lives were touched
I cherish my family and children and am blessed to be their mother, daughter, or sister.

Poetry is my life, that is serious! Everything else can wait! I have 2 beautiful adult children and a daughter-in-law who are my reason to breathe.God was kind and gave me one of each! Soon I will be a first time grandmother to fraternal boy/girl twins, God willing. They are due the end of July 2013.
I have moved around a great deal, lived in 5 states and traveled abroad, would like to do a lot more of that!
Poetry has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, life happens and all of my poems for the last 40 years have been lost. It crushed me. I have been building up my collections again, topics on LIFE and how I use poetry as my personal means of therapy and communing with God. Nearing completion of collection for publication soon! Stay tuned!
