Meet The Family

Daisy and Pinky, twins age 8
They came to live with me in October, 2003. They are as different as night and day. Pinky is the quieter of the two, she is a people pleaser, but she has a sneaky side. If she thinks she can get away with something she'll give it a try. Daisy gets up in the morning full of questions and goes to bed at night full of questions.

Pickles, middle child age 11
He came to live with me in October 2003. Pickles is the biological brother of Daisy and Pinky. He is a great kid. Friendly and kindhearted. I feel bad for him sometimes being the only male in a house full of females.

'Cole, the teen age 13
*insert primal scream here* She came to live with me in 1999 at age 4. Exceptionally intelligent and creative. She can be so sweet and then when she doesn't get her way, watch out , her dark side appears. She has a little problem with with prsonal responsibility. In other words...nothing is never her fault. Nothing.

My mother, age 64
Granny is my best friend. (usually) She has helped me care for my foster children and adopted children. She has supported me in whatever endeavour I have tried. Age is starting to catch up with her and she's forgetful sometimes, but having her live with me and be involved in my life helps to keep me focused.
We also have two dogs, Casey and Shadow, a cat named Oreo and a rabbit named Binky.

It's so nice to 'meet' you and your family through cyberspace. I have a Daisy, too!
I also have one who never wants to take responsibility for actions/problems. I pray about it because we must confess our sins to be forgiven of them. To confess them, one has to first accept responsibility for them. Thank goodness we are *all* works in progress, with God molding us into what He wants us to be.

What a blessing to have your Mother living with you!

God bless you!
