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.

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)

I just wanted to pay tribute to my husband on his birthday. Mark is sweet, sensitive, kind, loving, and silly. He entered our ready-made family as the father of two teenage boys and the husband to a very independent wife! He also left his home and moved across the country to a state that is far too hot for his tastes!! That can NOT have been easy!

The day he was born no one could have known what a music prodigy he would become, playing by ear, with two hands, on the piano after hearing a piece on the radio once. At 3 years of age.

I am thankful for my husband of almost 2 years, and the love that he gives me everyday. Happy Birthday, Markie! I love you!!

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.
