It’s the story of a wife and mother of two young girls who is deployed to Iraq with her Army National Guard Unit. It’s heartbreaking to experience her emotions as she has to leave her children [...]

My Favorite Meal

I confess I really enjoy Thanksgiving dinner and usually overindulge despite my resolve not to. But my very favorite meal is dinner the next evening. A few pieces of turkey on a plate for each of us and a little stuffing, covered with gravy. Add some yams (not sweet potatoes; my mother was from Texas and insisted on yams). Zap [...]
