Carolyn and Magdalena Ball have written a chapbook of poetry for mothers with photos by May L. Lattanzio. The title comes from one of Carolyn’s poems, “She Wore Emerald Then . . .” . She Wore Emerald Then: Reflections on Motherhood may be ordered for Mother’s Day through Amazon. www.budurl.com/MotherChapbook. Carolyn says of the book, “The poems reflect on motherhood in general.

We’re often part of the sandwich generation meaning we’re taking care of our own children and also our mothers and fathers, often ailing. Many of us are juggling two careers (or more!) if we’ve chosen to work outside the home as well as take care of that home ourselves. We partner more with husbands or partners who are sharing responsibilities that once were only under the purview of the mom-of-the-house. But moms are still the same in many ways.
