Zachary and Courtney

May 05, 2009 - 6 comments




In my last entry I told all of you about my oldest daughter Autymn, I have 2 other wonderful children, Zachary and Courtney, I think it is only fair to let you all know about them.
Zack, is such a interesting yet complex person. When I got first got sick in 2003, for a reason I still don't understand to this day thier mom just left. I was so sick I really couldn't do much. Zack was 15 at the time and he pretty much took over the house. He made sure that i woulkd write the checks for the bills and he did the grocery shopping. At the time Autymn was pregant she started early. that kid made sure the grass was cut and everything was in order. What a special person he is, going to be a social worker and work with teens.
Courtney was 13 when this all happened and she had a pretty hard time with everything. Thank God we had 3 dogs and she loves animals, so she made sure they were taken care of,it helped her alot I beleive. She also pitched in and did laundry, and help with dishes. For her age she did a graet job. She now is 19 and she is searching for her place in the world. I know she will find her place and do fine.
These are my 2 other wonderful children, and i felt that o owed it to them to tell you about them, I am so proud of all my kids, they were so there for me when I needed them the most and to this day they are there, they may be grown and on their own, but when I cal they beat feet to get here
My next entry will be about my son-in-law Phil, he is a real American hero and i think you all will want to read that one too. When you do you will understand, and that will be coming soon..God Bless All...brian

Thank you again Brian for giving us a peek into the blessings you have received in these children, who were forced at an early age to step up to the plate and do the right thing in the face of adversity.

Reading of your plight and the deliverance from it, though words like love, faith, honor, persistence, fortitude and love. Did I say love already ? Well, let me say it again, Love, Love, Love, Love, Love !! It cannot be said enough, because without this word "Love" the other words and many more like them would be meaningless.  Without it this WORLD would mean nothing at all.

So, thank you again for sharing what this beautiful word has done and continues to do in your life. Your sharing of it's power though your children and in your life has again given me hope.  That somehow, someway, no matter how tough our trials and circumstances are or how desperate and dark they may become that we can hold onto our FAITH that everything  will be alright. That love will prevail.    ~ Burr
