Victory ~! Victory ~! Victory~!

Here is Ben doing his Victory Dance~! He is happy because we have popcorn and icecream with Root Beer on top.. Yeah~!
Yesterday we went over to Holly's house for the Super Bowl Game party.. I didn't watch the game and Ben was having too much fun playing with the kids.. Holly has a big BIG basement at her house and the kids all went down to play flashlight tag.. He was having so much fun with the kids, running ~ laughing and hiding. When it was time to go home Of course he didn't want to go>>>>So I told him we would make some popcorn and have root beer floats.. He said "OK">>~!~! So off we went. I dropped Dave off at the house and we went to his MaMa"s house to have popcorn and RB floats... Tracie was home and Ben was so glad to see her..~! Here in a little bit it will be time for me to go pick him up from daycare and take him to MaMa"s house again.. Tracie has school tonight and I will stay and take care of him.
Went to the dentist this morning and had no cavities.. hardly had any plaque on my teeth . I think my Phillips electric toothbrush must be working... I brush twice a day and it must be keeping the plaque off.. I was a happy happy person..
Holly called and said I need you to come over right away.. So I drove my car to her house.. When I got there she had this gal, named Christine at her houseand she was very sad and crying. Her daughter age 18 was threatening to do harm to Christine.. She was really scared.. So we talked with her for along time. Christine said her daughter was mad because she told her she had to move out and find another place to live... The daughter is very abusive to her mom and it's just awful... Daughter has a job and works 40 hours a week.. Why are people so mean to each other .. Just doesn't make sense to me.. Well, Christine told her daughter she had to be out of her house by Saturday.. Now Christine is afraid to stay in her house ~ so today Christine is going to stay at Holly's house and this evening and tomorrow go back home. Poor girl, I'm not going to go into detail but it's just awful what this daughter is doing to Christine.. At least she will be safe with Holly and her family. After she talked with Holly and I she felt better and she was stronger in spirit >. She just needs support and someone to help her through this hard time she is having in her life. Another girl that needs lots of love. Jackie and her two girls are still living in Holly's basement ... She has a job now along with going to school... and her life is getting better. Won't be long and she will have her own place and be on her feet again.. God is helping us with these girls and keeping us strong and in turn working in these girls lives.. They have both accepted Christ into their lives...What a blessing~!
Sun is shining today and it's a really nice day.. 16 degrees but at least there is no wind.. It's time to go get Ben... Have a great tiggeriffic day~! ta ta for now,,,from Iowa

So many people are abused in one way or another, Annie. It's good to know that you and your friends are so supportive of their new life!...:)JP
