The real hero is always a hero by mistake. <------ Truth.

The time has come for me to tell you all about "Military Boots".  Who was this mystery man and where did he come from?  Was he medical personnel?  Did someone order him to help?  Was it his job?

I've been looking at this blank post for a couple days.  Much longer than I intended to or wanted to.  I have no idea where to start.  The other three posts were "easy" because they were simply telling a factual story, from memory.  I find this post more difficult because...

I re-claiming my marriage, one night at a time.  Remember this post?  I was more than thrilled that weekend when Charles and I got to sleep in separate beds.  It was a dream come true.  I was 8 months pregnant and sleeping was clearly far more important than anything else...

Since Kaleb has become quite attached to his Grandpa and everything his Grandpa does, I wanted to get some pictures of him in the cotton fields during harvest.  I contacted my dear friend over at Crazy Dreams Photography and she graciously agreed to get down and dirty wit...
