Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

About Me

Sunny Florida, United States
I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

If you don't know my mom, you don't know what a HUGE thing this is. I was able to DRAG my mother to a card-making class (I go every month)!! She HATES HATES HATES anything to do with crafts or art and she dreaded this activity long before our vacation even arrived! I was SO proud of her, though: she made FOUR cards, and they looked great! Here she is with three of them, earning that triumphant and proud look. I was SO proud of her. Go, Mom!!

Here I am with my husband, the love of my life. I look horrible in this picture, but I so enjoy spending time with him.

Here is little Daisy, in her "party dress". She seems to really like wearing dresses. She does! (Please, no letters about how dogs shouldn't wear clothes...!)

Mom got this amazing picture of an alligator that lived in a pond near our backyard at the rental house. Have I mentioned before that I HATE alligators??

I think the guys are going to miss their foosball and pool games! They are quite the competive two!

Mom and Joe leave tomorrow morning very early, and we will miss them!! It's back to work on Monday, and our homestudy is Thursday. This will be a HUGE piece of the puzzle in our quest for Simon, and will be a relief to have it overwith!

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
