Mrs. Wilkey's first novel, Two Tattered Hearts, was published by G and J Publishers and can be found at Amazon.com. It's a novel about how Anna, an abused spouse escapes, with her son, the man-made hell she lives in and finds love.

My boys:
Number one is in an army uniform
Number two as a chef is adorned
Number three an engineer, you see
Number four is in college, at home with me
Husband and I aging more each day
Getting older in every way
Three cats let their wishes known
One small Dachshund sings his own song

Success is hanging on after others have let go.

    ulster3: People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
    If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
    If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
    What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
    If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
    Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.

    From The Paradoxical Commandments, by Dr. Kent M. Keith. Mother Teresa quoted this often.
