With my husband Dennis in the armed services, there are many thoughts that keep me awake at night. I worry about his safety and about the safety of the other brave men and women with whom he serves. I worry that his deployment means he will miss seeing our daughter’s first bites of food, hearing her first words, watching her eyes light up as she experiences her first Christmas morning and blowing out her first birthday candle.

I grew up in West Georgia, in a region sometimes called Hurricane Alley (and Tornado Alley). I've always considered myself to be a veteran of bad weather. I rode out many a storm in my grandparents' cellar, among the spiders, pot belly stove, and library-tidy rows of colorful canned vegetables and fruits. It was actually kind of fun then and things usually returned to normal fairly quickly after the storm passed.
