Today is the 4th of July... you know that right? But... really, it's Independence Day. For us, it is another day that the Mr. is home so we can savor more time with him.
There is applesauce cooking on the stove. A delicious smell fills our air conditioned home right now. Goosie and Boomer are upstairs playing in Goosie's bedroom and there is a boom of thunder. I just heard two sets of little feet run for the Mr.
There will be no running towards the Mr.
He will be supporting those fighting for the freedom of others... Independence from insurgents and militants that have destroyed their lives.
I will be the one they run to when the thunder roars. I will be alone in my battle of the boo boos...
Thank you for all your dedication, Mr. We love you... to the sun and the moon and back.
