    They Are Growing Up My oldest son is about to

    graduate from High School. I took him this weekend to pick out a grad suit. After some searching we found one that fits him really well. He truly looks amazing in it - so grown up. Usually he can only be found in jeans and t-shirts so this was truly was a transformation. I wasn...

    Love and knowledge are the most important

    things we can acquire. Nothing is more important, not the money you make. Not the the most prizes possessions you own. If you have a caring family be thankful and cherish every moment spent with them because when they are no longer there with you. All those things you thought...

    I feel very blessed because I have a very

    supportive family. Despite the fact that we may get on each others nerves and have several disputes every now and then, at the end of the day that's my family and I love them all. I believe it is important to try to maintain that relationship with your family despite your...

    Family isn't always blood.

    Its the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and love you no matter what.

    and older brother. Our younger brother is still in contact. We miss them and believe that families should love each other no matter what. We have invited everyone over for Mother's day brunch. We hope they all come and can be at least pleasant.

    Family doesn't mean same DNA.

    In fact for me my absolutely closest of family are some of my friends on here. They are here for me always when things are down. When they can when things are good. Never judging, They are they best one could ever ask for.
