Amazing Grace
Excerpt

"Just indulge me for a few moments and take a look at your family ... Some of us are gorgeous and the others not so much. Some of us have money and others have zilch. There are a few lovely dwellings and others that look like the ass end of a cow, but all are equally comfortable ... We have a lot of crazy dogs and cats because who can get through life without them?" —Amazing Grace
