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 missed it, there's a new post about Erik at the zoo below this post.)

REESE (2nd to arrive, 3rd oldest)

1) He loves baseball and is enjoying learning lots about sports these days.

2) Has one of the biggest, most tender hearts of any boy his age I've ever known.

3) Has FABULOUS people skills! To know him is to love him!

4) Wants to get into politics some day, and has aspirations of high office.

5) Misses his dog Adam terribly. Hardly a day goes by without mention of him...

6) Is very family-oriented. (yay!!)

7) Isn't big on little kids, but is his 5 y.o. brother's #1 fan. ;o)

8) Can't wait to join the workforce (didn't get that from me!).

9) Is honest to a fault.

10) Tries his hardest to live a Christ-centered life, which can't be easy when going to public high school. I'm SO proud of him.

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.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
