About the Book & the Author
Life is a gift not to be wasted, but to be lived with courage, hope and a sense of adventure. Not that I have reached the twilight years I am surprised at things remembered since my childhood. As I put memories of my life on paper, I invite all of you who enjoy a good story to accompany me through the years.
I would like to dedicate this book to my husband Ollie and my daughters Annmarie & Olive, their husbands Sean & Shane and my grandchildren, Bethany, Aoibheann, and Taylor.
Who have shared the rough and good times with me.
“The Joy of a dream come true”
I cannot do what you can do
You cannot do what I can do
But together we can do something beautiful for God.
Journey Through Life
Written By Maura Renehan
Co-written by Mary Prendergast
Surrounded by friends I pass all my days.
The sun as its shining I enjoy all its rays.
My body is weak buy my faith is strong.
With god on my side, we’ll all get along.
As I journey thorugh life I carry a heavy load.
The road that I may follow will be my abode.
So don’t be afraid you’re of one of the chosen few.
Just hold his hand sincerely and he will guide you.
Be kind to everyone and love one another.
Treat everybody as sister and brother.
When your work on earth is done, it will seem so long.
He will take you home you’ll never be alone.
So to yourself be true and your gifts you will renew.
For life has many seasons that pass along your way.
The shadow by your side will bring a brand new tide.
So hold on and remember, his arms are open wide.

Maura’s book is a lovely simple heart felt story from a very brave and cheerful lady.
I have read Maura’s book 3 times, and it brought back many memories of long ago up on the knock on a Sunday Afternoon. It is a lovely book, best of luck with it.

Maura, your book was a joy to read. My son Hilary Óg was fascinated with it. He loves local lore, it was so easy to read and he wants it left on his book shelves. I’ll be a willing customer for the next book.
