Before sitting down to write the column, I decided to clean our windows. Truthfully, because we will be sitting inside as the cooler weather arrives and you can’t help but see the accumulation of dirt. There is nothing like sparkling clean windows. This simply task brought back memories of my dear Mom cleaning all thirteen windows in Brooklyn on our 2nd floor apartment, sitting on the ledge! She took pride in her beautiful home while raising seven children in a five-bedroom apartment. We thought we lived in paradise with love, happiness and a strong faith. Mom and Dad were powerful spiritual beings who believed in helping the poor.
