My Little Girl's Hand...

Little hands to big ones grow
Oh the things you'll need to know
To grow up wise and strong and true
May I be there to guide you through...

a prayer written for my children in 1975

my favorite photo of Casey and me, hands together, in 1982







This is the hand of my beloved daughter Elizabeth Casey...her hand was given to Christopher B. on November 13, 2007...when he asked her to become his wife...

Just back from a short vacation...magazine is put to bed finally...I will be here thanksgiving day for my list of gratitudeities...
