Item description for Growing Roots and Spreading Wings by G. R. Pharr...
Overview Have you the Roots that it takes to live through depression, war, accidents, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and observing a loved one's dying, and have you the Wings to land safely? From the 1920s through each decade to the present, Giving Roots and Spreading Wings takes us through one family's love of God, family, and country, and how they deal with the trials and hardships in their lives, incorporating faith, humor, sorrow, insight, and philosophy. Experience the pride of service to country as a sailor and to youth as teachers. Laugh and cry with them as they work with troubled students trying to get an education. See through this family's eyes how to react to a hurricane in Florida, an earthquake in California, and a tornado in Oklahoma. Think of the changes that WWII brought, feel the contentment of working in the soil, the joys of a wedding, and the hope a new birth can bring to a family. The sections on the mother's Alzheimer's disease and death, breast cancer, prostate cancer, bone cancer, and the daughter-in-law's death are universal themes with which everyone in the graying of America can identify. In contrast to modern-day expressions of love through graphic bedroom scenes, observe the love of two friends that grows into a love that lasts for a lifetime when the physical attractions of the body have been taken away.
