Freedom Is Not Free

Some people honestly don’t know the true reason for celebrating Memorial Day.  They see it as the beginning of summer and the official grand opening of beaches all around the nation.  They see it as the perfect time to fire up the grill and have friends over for cookouts.

Friends…How Many Of Us Have Them?

I should be an expert on making friends. Besides, I have lived in four different states in the past five years. But you know what? I am shy, contrary to popular belief. It’s not my natural personality to be outgoing. It’s hard for me to always be “The New Girl”. By the time I get… Read More


Many years ago, I was sure that I would NEVER marry a man in the military. Besides, I was not going to be pregnant all by myself, while he is off in a foreign land fighting in a war! I would not even date military guys…until I met my husband. He was a great friend… Read More
