This is very thought provoking. Sometimes I feel like the glue in my family and sometimes I am the whistle blower. Nobody likes the whistle blower. She rocks the boat.

A family is an ever changing organism, just when I think I've got it and my role in it figured out, something new enters the picture. I've had an 'A' in family relationships before, but right now I'm somehwere in the 'B's. Homework.
