I could see the painful look on the faces of those I chose to torture. I could see those glances to one another that people think you can't see but you always do. But I honestly couldn't help myself. I had been training myself for motherhood since I was a girl.

And my children, though a perpetual pain in my...uh...abdomen..have always been a source of joy and love.
All three of my biological children have birthdays a week apart. Delainia and Delainia TODAY (October 12) and Gerald (October 17). LOVE Y'ALL
Happy Birthday Gerald, Delainia and Elainia!!!
PS I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Journey and Isaac, who have become as dear to me as if I'd given them birth too. (Though I know I didn't bear the labor pains, Teresa :)) And I thank Journey for three more beautiful grandchildren.
Ron and I are too young to have our own ready-made family reunion but we do. We fuss, we cuss, we shake our heads then envelope them all in hugs as wide and warm as our arms will allow. Then we fuss and cuss and shake our heads some more.
