Like all young people she must have had many dreams at that age of innocence, not knowing what the future would be like. There were good times ahead and other times not so pleasant. In all she had a good life, and we, her children, are very thankful in the way we were brought up.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower;
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

William Blake
