I hold the hand of a strong, but gentle man.
A man who is never too proud to step forward,
and brave enough to sometimes walk behind.

I dedicate this book with respect and devotion
to my husband,
First words
I awake this morning to the dull ache in my back, which has grown as familiar to me as an old friend
Yesterday, my words flowed free,
Yesterday, the rose was a blooming,
But today the petals wash away,
Lost in the Carolina Rain.
