And when one of them has anything negative to say, ask them "How much did you contribute to her moving back into her own home?"

RB, The Pirate is always the first one there when someone in the family needs help. Yet anytime he has needed it, the rest of the family can't be found. Not even in the wrinkles of the sheets. Yet he always goes back for more. And I keep reminding him that he is going to get left in the lurch again the next time he needs help. But he seems to be the only one who has the big heart and got the message that I have been preaching all these years. Family! Family! Family! I think you heard me instead of the rest of my family. And that is not a bad thing.

Great quote. However, I do not think I did anything great. Just did something. Thanks.

Thanks Addie and everyone else. I really do appreciate all these kind words and the encouragement.
