It is my wish in writing down these things my grandmother shared with me not to project her lifestyle and decisions as a roadmap or way for any woman to live her life. It is simply a recording of events in my grandmother, Lizzie's life. Really, she lived  much as many women today live as single mothers but a generation before them.

Maybe she gave me this material and wanted me to know of her pain. By knowing  her sorrows I would be  encouraged to do something different with my decisions, which I have done.

Certainly, as I review this material it gives me a moment to think about the things I will wish to leave with my granddaughters. Will I be able to be as honest and matter of fact in sharing information with them?

Elizabeth Little Cook's Great granddaughter, who recently was killed.
