She loved music and being a "genius juke master", watching movies, from comedies to anything mafia related like GoodFellas "Ma' I wanna be big just once", and dateline.
Footprints In the Sand
"One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only. This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord, "You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you \ most, have you not been there for me?" The Lord replied, "The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you."
