This is the story of a third generation Texas woman born in a small town in the center of the Texas Panhandle. Over protected and reared to be a wife and mother just as all the women in her family had been, her goal became just that, to be a wife and mother and to have a family of her own.
Fate intervened, however, at every crossroad when her difficult first marriage to a rancher ended and she faced life as a single parent. After remarrying a few years later she was soon tragically widowed and, at 31, had to bury the man she loved so dearly. He was a Pathologist whose own terrible twist of fate occurred at the beginning of his medical career when, as an intern at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, he assisted with the initial postmortem exam on our late President John F. Kennedy. From that moment he was forced to live with deadly secrets which severely altered his life forever.
This story focuses on the author's great struggle to believe in herself to face the world alone and the unbelievable frustration of having to again and again tolerate and rise above numerous legal entanglements, drastic financial losses and, on top of everything else, employment injustices; all this while rearing her daughter with no one by her side to believe in her. In midlife, she was brought to her knees after having a series of tragic events when she even prayed to die... this time she was led to the Great Throne of God's Grace.
In writing this she was able to revisit and immortalize those she loved so dearly after losing precious loved ones tragically...a life impossible but for the grace of God and for scriptures such as: Proverbs 3: 5 & 6, "Trust in the Lord with all thy heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths"; Genesis 50:20, "But as for you, ye thought evil against me, but God meant it unto good"; and Proverbs 16:3, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans".
