About the Book
This little book was a gift from a mother to her young daughters during a time of personal crisis. It contains all the hopes, encouragement and wisdom that she wanted her daughters to remember in life. Composed in 1971, this version with unedited text and original scenic photographs has been made by one of the daughters to preserve and to share a personal treasure.
Currently running a boat kit business in WA, I have traveled the world on sea and land, living definite chapters of a colorful life. Recently returned to the continental US and working on publishing several works that have been in the making over the years abroad. I put this little book, "I have a Thousand Hopes" together for my mother who wrote it so long ago, to remind her that she has been a better mother than she gives herself credit for.
