    My difficult child did two things that I am proud and happy about. First he went to the last group home he was in and asked if they would take him back. They said yes if he paid his back rent of $120. He says that when his cash assistance comes through that is the first thing he is going to do.

    The second thing was that he showed up at my door in the middle of the snowstorm to shovel me out. He said that he thought husband was not home to do it and even though husband had already done most of it difficult child finished up. (We did get a bit more after he went home but husband is clearing that himslef).

    So since it is not often I get to post good things I thought I'd share.
    I have always told you that there was a very sweet side to my difficult child but his chaos usually obscures it. -RM
