Standing steady...

"And we stood steady as the stars in the woods,
so happy hearted in the warmth"

Hurricane Camille...

August 17, 1969...Hurricane Camille.  I still wonder why we didn't change her middle name to Camille?  I remember that hospital ward in Quantico Naval Hospital.  We gathered at the windows to watch rescue helicopters land on the grounds.  They were picking up survivors from the flooded James River and bringing them to Quantico.  We had no idea how bad things were south of Prince William County.  All we knew were our sweet new babies in the nursery down the hall.

Ah yes, things were different then, and now.  She's grown into an awesome Veterinary Technician.  The pic is of her with one of her favorite and largest feline clients.  Happy Birthday my sweet girl.  We love you!

Fidelity to love...

Your fidelity to love, that is all you need.
No day will then match your strength,
What was once a fear or problem will see
you coming, and step aside...or run.
