LaNelle Colter writes to her friend in Tennessee after Louisiana Sandusky has emailed her.

Saturday, June 18, 2005, 4:11 p.m., E.D.T.~

Dear Louisiana~

Hello! Thanks for your very nice letter; I enjoyed hearing from you again! Hope you are all well and happy! The girls, Grover, and myself are all well, I am glad to say!

I am glad you got my book; and I hope you enjoy it! I have already read the first one, and I am reading "Book #2" now; what an inspiring, wonderful story you have written about your Rainbows! I certainly hope that God blesses your little Miracles abundantly! (And you too! *grins*)

You are adopting ANOTHER one?? GIRL, you ARE crazy!! Do you know you will soon have FIFTY THREE children?? GODAMIGHTY!! LOL I have enough trouble trying to keep tabs on six lively girls; HOW do you and Bill manage *52 CHILDREN*?? You either are crazy in the head, or you must have an awful love in your heart, that is all I can say!! But I bet little Janica will make an awesome addition to your International Family of Miracles; you will have to tell me more about her!! I hope you get Janica into your family!!

I heard from your friend Kendra Williams in California, and she is getting ready to add another child to her family as well, America Hope, from Sri Lanka! That is so wonderful!! (Her family almost sounds like mine...all girls! LOL Do you know any families that have only boys? I just wonder if there's any around...would like to hear from someone with a male's point of view in raising kids....LOL) She (Kendra) was telling me all about Chelsea, and she is a cutie patootie! She sent me her picture, and she is so pretty!

Kendra was telling me she had another shaker there this week; they've had several rounds of small earthquakes. No thanks; I have enough trouble dealing with plain old thunderstorms! LOL I am a storm phobic deluxe!! Storms absolutely terrify me!! I hope and pray that Kendra hasn't had any damage from those quakes....

We saw some auroras last week...there was a big sunstorm, and we saw the lights here...have you ever seen the Northern Lights? If not, they are really beautiful! A sure sign of God for sure!!

The weather here has been rainy some days, lovely on others...seems every other day or two we get rain, then it clears. But the temps are delightful, in the 70's...we went to Cedar Point several days ago, and the girls had a ball on the rides! I went on the Rip your Face Off (what I call Top Thrill Dragster; Grover talked me into it!), and it scared the holy s*** out of me!! I couldn't scream, for fear I'd lose my teeth! LOL When I got off, I called Grover every dirty name I could think of; and of coures, the girls found it hilarious! (But if I EVER catch them using that kind of language, they are going to be sucking on SOAP!!) Oooh, girl, I was sooo mad at Grover I could have pulled his fool head off!!

I am surprised I survived that thing...some rides are NOT for the faint of heart, that is for DARN sure!! Speaking of scary rides, did you hear about that little four-year-old boy who died on that ride at Disneyworld?? Sheesh! If I was the ride operator, I'd turn the mother in for child endangerment or cruelty; what in the WORLD was she ever THINKING?? That's CRAZY!! I would NEVER let my girls on rides that threaten a rider's safety (let alone, HEALTH)!!

Give me the plain old Blue Streak any day; that's more my speed when it comes to coasters...some of these newfangled things they have at Cedar Point are waaaaaaaaaaaaaay past my idea of fun!! Why call something fun if it is only going to scare the beJESUS out of you??...

Well, Louie, I know this isn't much, but we are getting ready to go to a special military thingamajig they are having for local troops that made it home...I will be back later; and I will write again soon. Thanks for writing! It is so good to hear from you again! God bless you all mightily, and again, congratulations on the (pending) adoption of little Janica; she sure is cute!!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Michigan, LaNelle Colter. :D
