I was upstairs organizing my new studio space when I looked up and saw this, H bathing Tootie. It hit me that this is the perfect image of a military man. I can't think of a more appropriate picture for Memorial day. When most people think of soldiers and the military they think of hulky, burly jarhead type men portrayed in the news and movies. Sure they have that side but it's such a small percentage of who they are. The men (and women) soldiers I've met are extremely family oriented. They are active in their kids lives and love them fiercely*.
*This* is the picture I want others to see of my soldier. A man brave enough to face the nightly bath.
*Fiercely is one of H's words and has seeped into my lexicon. Funny how marriage does that.
