For one little girl, her very long name tells the vibrant story of where she came from — and who she may one day be. If you ask her, Alma Sofia Esperanza José Pura Candela has way too many names: six! How did such a small person wind up with such a large name? Alma turns to Daddy for an answer and learns of Sofia, the grandmother who loved books and flowers; Esperanza, the great-grandmother who longed to travel; José, the grandfather who was an artist; and other namesakes, too. As she hears the story of her name, Alma starts to think it might be a perfect fit after all — and realizes that she will one day have her own story to tell. In her author-illustrator debut, Juana Martinez-Neal opens a treasure box of discovery for children who may be curious about their own origin stories or names.

Not only does Roch give you a very magical and entertaining routine which even fools magicians, but he also gives you the ability to easily create an instant cost-nothing working prop anytime for yourself or a unique souvenir for your volunteer which that person will value and keep forever.

Roses and Black Glass Lani Lenore 2013-12-02 Cinderella - The story is always the same: a girl - hated and abused by her step-family - meets her prince at a ball. There is involvement with a glass shoe, a bit of magic, and in the end, they all live happily ever after. You've heard it before - but you've never heard it like this: In early America, at a time when dealings with dead bodies is considered taboo, Cindy's father is a mortician. She, for one, is fascinated by the controversial work, until her mother dies and her father marries Anna van Burren, who brings two new sisters into the family. Cindy's misery only grows from there. Following her father's untimely death, Cindy's life spirals into darkness as she is forced to become a servant in her own home, to wait on her hated siblings and stepmother. She has become so sequestered that she can't even let the one man she continues to think about know that she is alive. She met him once in the mortuary years ago - a handsome, curious boy who had been a surprise to her - until she'd discovered who he was. Now a man, Christian is a perfect specimen, and also the object of her step-sisters' affections. According to a stipulation of his inheritance, he must marry before age twenty-one. That day is fast approaching. Any hope Cindy had of seeing him again - or of salvaging anything that should have been left of her life - seems lost. Cindy's world is filled with misfortune. She believes she must be cursed. It takes the appearance of a strange woman who brings a wicked prophecy before Cindy can see how blessed she could become - and to see what sacrifices were made to give her hope once again.
Senior Scribbles Unearthed Chuck Thurston 2012-11-01 You are sure to discover something in these tales – about yourself, your friends and relatives – perhaps even a favorite pet. They are all “tall and true” – as Chuck Thurston describes them. Originally published as newspaper columns in a number of small dailies, Thurston has “unearthed” this collection for first time book publication.A senior himself, he understands and empathizes with his cohort as we all march into maturity carrying our memories and recollections – sometimes with dignity, and often laced with a little silliness that helps us get through our golden years. There is plenty of humor here, and a little nostalgia; perhaps even a bit of wisdom that the author claims he probably doesn't deserve, but “will gratefully accept.”Thurston wants those sneaking up on his age, or growing apace with him, to read and say “Gee -- I have been through that too...I know just how that feels!”These tales aren't just for the “over the hill” crowd by any means, though. Younger readers may gain some insight into what makes the inhabitants of “wrinkle city” (as one of his granddaughters so elegantly put it once) think and do the way they do.Thurston doesn't grind any political, religious or philosophical axes, and advises readers looking for stern opinions on those topics to get their feathers ruffled elsewhere. He may, though, ponder at the ironies of the universe. Read these Scribbles, and you may be pondering with him.

The Wife Desired Fr. Leo Kinsella The role of the girl in life is the most glamorous and fascinating in all the world. To the nomads of the East she is the “little gazelle” and to the Japanese the “plum blossom.” In the Book of Proverbs she is the “dearest hind and most agreeable fawn.” Jewels, sapphires and rubies, are her eyes and lips. The softness of a spring morning are in her words. Her smile is as the splendor of the rising sun. Of all the creatures in the world she is made by God the most beautiful. She is the incarnation and summation of all the flowers of nature. No man ever spoke more truth than when he whispered into the ear of his beloved that she was divine. She is an image, a spark of divinity given to us in life as a preview of things to come. She is yielding, helpless, yet divine. To whom God has given much, from her much is expected. Of no other creature is so much demanded. She is to be the helpmate of man the mother of his children. She is to keep his home to comfort him in loneliness and weariness, and to bring him back to health when sick. This appraisal of the part a girl plays in life may seem to some flattering. Yet, it is sincerely made. Actually this judgment of the ladies is more challenging than flattering, for what girl could fail to desire to measure up to this appraisal in the eyes of her husband? Countless young wives have merited from their husbands the esteem that they were the most glamorous and fascinating creatures in all the world. Unfortunately too many girls have failed to do so, and thus experience the misery of an unhappy, if not broken, marriage. The purpose of this book is to show the girl, the young wife how she may easily have success and happiness in marriage, being in the eyes of her husband “the dearest hind and most agreeable fawn.” This classic includes the following chapters: 1. The Wife Desired Is an Inspiration to Her Husband 2. The Wife Desired Has Personality 3. The Wife Desired Is Patient 4. The Wife Desired Is a Physical Being 5. The Wife Desired Has a Sense of Humor 6. The Wife Desired Is a Companion to Her Husband 7. The Wife Desired Is Religious

On Flowers Amy Merrick 2019-10-15 Named a Best Gift Book of 2019 by InStyle, Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, and the Wall Street Journal “If coffee tables could make . . . wish lists, [this book] would certainly be on them.” —Better Homes & Gardens A singular, personal celebration of the beauty and possibilities of nature Amy Merrick is a rare and special kind of artist who uses flowers to help us see the familiar in a completely new way. Her gift is to revel in the unexpected—like a sunny spring arrangement housed in a paper coffee cup—and to overturn preconceptions, whether she’s transforming a bouquet of supermarket carnations into a breathtaking centerpiece or elevating wild and weedy blooms foraged from city sidewalks. She uses the beauty that is waiting to be discovered all around us—in leaves, branches, seedpods, a fallen blossom—to tell a story of time and place. Merrick begins On Flowers with a primer containing all her hard-won secrets on the art of flower arranging, from selecting materials to mastering pleasing proportions. Then she brings readers along on her journey, with observations on flowers in New York City and at her family’s summer home in rural New Hampshire, working on a flower farm off the coast of Washington State, and studying ikebana in a jewel-box flower shop in Kyoto. We learn how to send flowers like a florist, and how to arrange them like a farm girl. We discover the poignancy in humble wildflowers, and also celebrate the luxury of fragrant blousy blooms. Collected here is an anthology of floral inspiration, a love letter to nature by an exceptional, accidental florist.

Poems Are How We See Elizabeth Anne Jones 2017-09-24 The elegance of Elizabeth Anne Jones' poems can be found in such lines as: "One feels beauty, and knows/ when one is near a rose--/ but wind moves petals/ and tugs at leaves in a trembling tree./ It moves me." Or in her poem about old goats: "their small hooves tapping/ spritely songs of clippy-clapping." There are many voices in her poetry like the village women of Punjab who "sit/ kerchiefs of faded scraps/ tied across their lower faces/ to ward off evil germs--" And finally, in her poem, "The Dark," she writes: "A lute sings softly/ where I live/ a table, some fruit, a chair." She invites us into her poems. "Please come inside." Her poems have been published in various periodicals, books of poetry, and orally on audio CD's. They have also won many prizes. She became a serious poet in 1978 while she was working on her Masters Degree in poetry, at the University of Hawaii, where she studied under such well-known poets as James Wright who won a Pulitzer Prize for his Collected Works, and John Logan. She felt privileged to have had a course in research with Leon Edel, whose biography of Henry James won him a Pulitzer Prize. (He told us that if we ever published a book, to mention him, because it would give the book more clout.) Then, there was Elizabeth McCutcheon, a gifted teacher, whose courses in early 17th century poetry were inspired, and inspiring. We never got done reading her handouts. It was a wonderful climate for poets. And as a gardener, Anne would say that the potting soil was of the highest order.

Unbroken Laura Hillenbrand 2014-07-29 #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE • Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will. Appearing in paperback for the first time—with twenty arresting new photos and an extensive Q&A with the author—Unbroken is an unforgettable testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit, brought vividly to life by Seabiscuit author Laura Hillenbrand.

[Hillenbrand] has crafted another masterful blend of sports, history and overcoming terrific odds; this is biography taken to the nth degree, a chronicle of a remarkable life lived through extraordinary times.”—The Dallas Morning News “An astonishing testament to the superhuman power of tenacity.”—Entertainment Weekly “A tale of triumph and redemption . . . astonishingly detailed.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “[A] masterfully told true story . . . nothing less than a marvel.”—Washingtonian “[Hillenbrand tells this] story with cool elegance but at a thrilling sprinter’s pace.”—Time “Hillenbrand [is] one of our best writers of narrative history.

The Tombstone Mining District was a fluid area, filled with hard working settlers, some of the nations best mining engineers, and some of the nations worst criminals. The Tombstone saga and its greatest conflicts were linked to incidents outside of Tombstone. A shooting near Drew's Station, drew Wyatt Earp more closely into conflict with the local outlaw element. This in turn would set in motion a chain of events that would in part lead to the West's most famous gunfight, the Gunfight near the O.K. Corral. The Earps were brought into court at Contention City over the shootings in Tombstone. The all important history of Drew's Station, Contention City, and Fairbank, Arizona Territory are now revealed for the first time ever. Heavily documented and thoroughly researched, many misconceptions about this portion of the wild west are brought to light, and a great deal of previously unpublished research is now available for the first time, bringing to light the key stories of these key locations along the road to Tombstone.

Unapologetically, Me. Synclaire Roberts 2014-10-11 This book is a compilation of my thoughts-- transformed into poems, quotes, and self notes. At the unseasoned age of 20, I can testify to life taking me through some expected changes and detours. There were many days that I couldn't speak, think, or even write clearly. Through silence, prayer, and this little writing outlet, I've learned so much. I've found inspiration in the most unexpected places. I've learned that it's okay to cry. It's okay to not know all the answers. It's okay to be you-- Unapologetically you. Sometimes, it's even okay to feel lost.. So long as you remember who you are. We're all destined for greatness and success. I pray this book opens minds, encourages smiles, and inspires creativity. Above all, I'm forever grateful to my Heavenly Father for his magnificent plan over my life.
