In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

It is Finished!

No more boo-hoo-ing....no more handouts ...no more publicity shots.....and no more toothpaste! This may sound crazy, but the last one really got to me. Just a couple of days ago I was jolted out of la la land when a sudden realization hit me. When Katrina hit us and knocked us to the ground the people of this wonderful nation pulled together and sent us all kinds of supplies. God bless you if you donated, but let me be candid for a moment. It's hard to show overwhelming gratitude for things like toothpaste when you don't know where half of your loved ones are...Are they ok?......Where am I going to live?...etc. So here I am 2 1/2 years later and I reached into the cabinet to get one of my freebie tubes of Crest that I had stockpiled and to my dismay found none! It was at that moment that I realized that it was over. I am now on my own. Everyone has been a tremendous blessing, but it's time to move on.....gosh I don't even know what a tube costs anymore! Whatever the cost it was shocking because anything is more expensive than free. I said all of this to say THANK YOU whoever you are for taking care of the little things while my family and I were unable to do it for ourselves.
