greate meme answers. I love the holidays, but of late, the work to prepare for the festivities is more than I care to deal with, and I get more stressed during the holidays rather than rest. Especially at during Christmas. There is the joy, of course, but I'm going to cut back on some of the things I do that trap me in stress mode. I love the music, the lights, the smells, the stories and songs of Christmas celebration (in the Christian sense), being with friends... but the rest I could do without. Thank you for visitng my journal today!! bea

Thank YOU for sharing your story. My daughter has inherited a Daughter K ( her boy friend's just turned  13 daughter.) She came from a horrid living environment, Almost homeless the mother lived with whoever with her 3 daughters. K was to much to handle  so she came to a new home. She knew little of the basic functions of life grooming, eating, school, She knew how to take care of her little sisters and survived in her own way. Sadly she was taken advantage of by males around her.  Which she referred to as her dates. She did not know what was right or wrong.
She has come along way since her move 18 months ago. She has much needed glasses.  She has been diagnosed  bi-polar. She is on her med's, in school, has a counselor, she has learned to bath, primp  and even has her very own bedroom.

She still has issues that will take years to heal - she interrupts, talks on and on, She fights at school and is a know it all, a bit pesty. Slowly but surely she improves as she is walk the new life path that has been given to her. I wish her peace.
