As we all know it is very hard being a SM and sometimes we get so caught up in it all we forget about ourself and our relationships, so here are two quotes from two old friends that I thought I would share with you:

"You need to be happy first, before you can make others happy"

"Relationships should compliment your life, not complicate it!"


"May the force be with you!"

Smile Ha! Ha!

I think we all need to print these quotes out put them on the fridge or by the computer at work to help us through this SM journey we have chosen. I went to Borders bookstore yesterday and bought a couple of books on stepparenting. I hope they help me understand how I can eliminate some of the frustrations. Hugs to all of you.

I always have hopes that she finds happiness, because I just know that if she were happy she would quit trying so hard to make everyone around her so miserable.
