Ida a true life story
by Olympia Simonetti Normandy
I was around seventy when I first got the idea that I wanted to write a book about my life. Everyone I told said, "Ida, you're crazy. You can't write a book. You have no education, so why do you have such big ideas?" But I always wanted to write down some of the old stories about my family because otherwise they would be lost. After all, I'm not going to live forever. I'm going to be eight-two next month. Eighty-two. Can you imagine what it feels like to be that old?

Now playing: "M-O-T-H-E-R a word that means the world to me"
Sung by Eddie Arnold
Lyricist Howard Johnson, Composer Theodore Morse, 1915
M is for the millions things she gave me
O is that she's growing old
T is for the tears she shed to save me
H is for her heart of purest gold
E is for her eyes with love-light shining
R is right, and right she'll always be
Put them all together they spell MOTHER
The one who means the world to me
