You hear the term "melting pot" applied to the American Experience over and over again, but it seldom hits home until you put a face on those that are "melting". Esta Freeland Cox is one of those faces. Her grandmother was an emigrant from Wales and her father from English ancestry. Racy stories of early family members serving at the King's court in London can be found on one side of the family, as well as knights fighting Moors. Interspersed among the famous are lists of those common folk: farmers, small business owners, men and woman, miners, and entrepreneurs.
Among them all is found this wonderful woman, 91 years old at the time of the publication of this book. She was one of a family of 12 kids, going through the depression years, numerous wars, marriage, and the deaths of siblings and two husbands and two sons.
Yet this 91-year-old still shovels her own snow and walks two miles a day.
I am sure you will find these writings an inspiration for your life as you see the mind of this saint in print.
