We all come warmly from the womb,
Unprinted pages to be filled.
Brought forth upon the stage of life
On which our character starts to build.

About Alora M. Knight
Words have always been an important part of my life. My mother taught to read before I started school and coached me through winning spelling contests. I had to learn the meaning of the words, too. I've written books and articles for Salesian Inspirational Mission, Chicken Soup for the Sister's Soul, for newspapers and magazines, but receiving comments from all over the world because of Family Friend Poems has been my greatest pleasure. Knowing my words inspired, amused, and comforted is a great blessing.
I will be 100 years old next year and have been fortunate to have been able to keep busy writing poems and creating crossword puzzles - over 1500. I will see what the future brings.

Wow! This is really good, and it's also really true. People are all born the same, but it's how they grow up that make them different. Nice job!
MEMORIESCreating Good Memories
No matter what life takes away,
It leaves us memories
That oft times are drawn to us
Like flowers draw the bees.
The SceneryKeeping A Cheerful Attitude In Public
We are all a part of the scenery, you know,
No matter where you may live.
There's someone who will feel your presence,
Absorb the attitude that you might give.

Quotes by Alora M. Knight
I'll be 100 next year and I know what it is like to have to give up many things, although I am fortunate in that I am still producing poetry and crossword puzzles. I thank God every day for allowing me these activities that make life more interesting. Each one must do the best they can with what they have. Being cheerful tops the list. -Alora Knight
Dear Pat, I just read your poem today and know just how you feel. I can only thank my genes for the fact I look many years younger. I wash my face once a week and slap some Lubriderm on it. One of my poems is, "We are all part of the scenery," so I try. I'm 98 and fortunate that I can still eat, sleep, walk and talk, and make crossword puzzles. Keep on keeping on, even one of your smiles might make a difference. Regards, Alora Knight
I have a lot of things to be thankful for, but having you for my daughter tops them all. Love, Mama
I was very touched by this poem because it reflects how I feel. I'm 97 and have witnessed so much. I believe we can brighten the day, no matter what the circumstances are. My greatest treasure is the file of letters I have received from all over the world (thanks to Family Friends Poems) that let me know that people have been amused, comforted, or inspired by what I wrote.
