House full of kids

Last week Nyoka came with the kids.  Can you believe we had six kids here in this house and it didn't get as messy as when my two kids play?!  It was actually a peaceful time having her here.  The kids played together pretty well, no blood which is always good. 

I have missed having the sound of Nyoka at home, for those that don't know, she is my daughter.  I raised her from 14 years old and can't imagine my life without her in it.  She brings an air of joy with her and always has.  When she was a teenager, we used to lay around watching movies and eating ice cream sandwiches.  (Back in the days when she thought Van Dam was all that and a bag of chips!)  She could always make me laugh and gave me a sense of calmness.  She is a remarkable mother and a wonderful daughter. 

There are somethings in life we wonder why we do the things we do and she is the reason I did 9 years in the 90's.  I have been asked many times if I regretted marrying her could I?  I got Nyoka and that is a blessing every moment of my life.

Ohhh...that is SO special. Seeing you and Nyoka's relationship makes me keep going with Sammi even though her Mom makes my life a living hell! Thanks for sharing! I needed to hear that!

The same thing that brought Nyoka into your life brought you to the grand town of Coolidge where you got to spend so much time with my mother and I. We're glad you got to live in "Cool-town" for a bit. :)
