I've Been Blessed!

   and everything about them, good or bad...My husband is a gift from God, as is my daughter and grandson...Why you may ask?

   Poppy is the provider, he takes care of bills, mowing the lawn, feeding the cat and just helps with it all.

   Danielle is 35 now, and after a career of teaching, she is now my full time caregiver.  Since I found out about my cancer, she has devoted all her free time to our family and household tasks, raising her son, feeding the family and taking care of me.  How blessed I am.

   And then there is Jake, 11 years old and we can throw away the dictionarys cause he knows it all.  And not in a bad way.  He loves to share his WWII knowledge with me, takes time to read to me since I can't talk now, and has self taught himself sign language so we can laugh and joke together. 

    Oh, I love my family all right, and that doesn't even cover brothers and sisters, in-laws and my favorite cousins in the world, my Dad and my son who I haven't had contact with for years, he doesn't even know I am sick. But it doesn't matter, I LOVE MY FAMILY, just the way they are.
