Begin Again is a resilient "senior citizen". Reinventing and restructuring her life has become almost common place for her.

I love music, books, and sitting by the water. Each of these activities brings a sense of life to me.

She is an accomplished script writer and is currently at the #10 spot on the rankings.

"Do you promise ..."

"I do!"

Visions of an angel filled his thoughts. The familiar face staring into his brown eyes was a pillar in his life. He couldn't imagine living without her. She'd been by his side for as long as he could remember, guiding and encouraging him.

The sunbeams filtered through the window, forming a halo around her head. He'd do anything to make her smile.

"You promise ..."

"I do! I do!"

Her arms wrapped around him, enfolding him with her love.

Swallowing hard, five-year-old Jack wailed, "I'm sorry, Mommy. I'll never tell a lie again."

She smiled. "Good little boys always keep their promises."
