    My Family

    My family has always been the center of my life--whether it was when I was growing up-my siblings were so very important to me, as my family grew--nephews one right after the other-then the nieces that were adopted-they were so important and still are.  Then when I had...

    Definitely Agree!

    There have been times in my life where I thought I could definitely kill off a few family members because they have been driving me around the bend for some or other reason this especially goes for my two older brothers who have developed a little habit of irritating the hell out...

    ~*~ My Family ~*~

    I know this sounds corny to some but my biggest dream in life was to be a wife, a mother and be part of a large family. Bride dolls and baby dolls were my very favorite toys. I was the eldest  of 4 brothers and then finally a sister. We didn't have the benifit of an...

    How did this happen? Where did I go wrong?

    I made every effort to keep my teen happy but with discipline too. Always showed them love and affection. Why would my teen mumble the two words? Those two words that you say when you're so pissed off at a New York driver or a when a cop gives you a ticket for no reason. F...

    Family

    I think family is everything. It is important to spend quality time together when possible, to have fun together, share new experiences, and last but not least to talk about things. A family can break down quickly if there is a lack of communication and i do believe children are...
