Available Balance

Children are our life line and our future. I have two wonderful children. A daughter and a son and they mean the world to me.

I want them to be happy. And them to have want they need in life.

They are grown now and have kids of their own. They are both great parents. Thank the good Lord for that.


I see so many parents that abuse even kill there kids and I wonder why. What have those little kids did to be treated that way. The best I came up with is they were just there.

When a child is hungry they are go to let you know. Why beat on them cause they are crying ,something is wrong hunger they are wet they are sick or in pain. We have to take care of them they need us to love them.

I have three grand babies,two girls ages nine and five and a grand son seven. I love them very much and I cant see any one abusing them that would really upset me. My daughter or son would never do that cause they love them. Their partners love them too. not every family is like that.

Children and grand kids can be joy. They are our lives lived on after we are gone. I hope I am remembered long after I am gone. I have had a okay life and no I am not perfect but who is.

I am very proud of my kids. My daughter is a author and a very good one. My son is a good worker I would call him a jack of all trades he can do anything he sets his mind too. They are my pride and joy.

They have been there for me when I needed them. And I try to be there for them when they need me. Always will be.

My kids will leave a mark in this world. The mark I am leaving will be my kids.

memories of my early years

I was born 56 years ago. In Rich lands VA.  But that day I was not alone .I also had a twin brother. My dad was a coal miner for 10 years. When he came home from work all we could see was the white of his eyes. He was a hard working man for us. He built the house we lived in on Boyd Ridge. My grand parents lived down the hill from us.

My mother stayed home took care of me and my brother. I barely remember walking down the dirt road we lived on with her and her sister. She was a good mother. I remember my dad telling me when I was a toddler that I got to close to the fire place and the snow suit I was wearing caught on fire my mother put it out with bare hands. god love her they said she burnt her hands bad.

I remember dad putting me and my brother on the back of old Charlie. He was a huge work horse they used in the fields he was a great horse.

My grand parents had a farm. Fresh milk, fresh eggs, Fresh veggies out of the garden. She even had 2 big cherry trees in the yard. A huge grape vine also. She made the best biscuits ever with gravy. She canned everything even sausage, pickled corn,beans,beats ,etc..

It snowed a lot there but we always stayed warm. We used wood heat best heat there is.  We would sled down the hill with card broad. That was fun.

I really enjoyed my time on the mountain even through it was short lived there. I still have memories from then and will never forget them.

Lost my grand dad when I was 10. Very sad day for me I loved him dearly.he died from black lung he got from the coal mines. Lost a few uncles from that too. Thank the good lord my dad got out of them in time.

Lost my grand ma to Leukemia,and old age to she lived a full life of 92. I miss her too very much. She was a good and strong woman with silver long hair. I took after her on that she was a beautiful woman.
