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)
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Sheer BLISS!! :o)

And Nik even enjoyed watching!

There were SO MANY white ibises in the little pond there - they are so pretty! (Click on the picture to see the detail of these beautiful birds.)

I was outlawed from showing pictures of Reese at the park, because he's (FINALLY) getting his newest set of legs and the test sockets he's wearing now he's embarrassed of (brother! - not sure what's to be embarrassed of, they are just plain gray and black!) so I was strictly cautioned against posting the one shot I got of him today. Kids!!

That is the best picture ever! You named it right...bliss. You should frame that one, because if you are ever having a down moment, that picture will most certainly bring you up. If that doesn't, nothing will!

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.
