Written by Robert Crais, but completely wrapped in newspaper, I still chose the book, Suspect. I placed it, still wrapped, on the seat beside me as I drove home. I have been choosing Rate My Date books from our local library since the 2nd week in February.
When I tore off the wrapping, my heart was excited to see one of my favorite dogs on the front cover, a german shepherd. I started reading the prologue, The Green Ball. I was pulled in right away because the subjects were Marines, both Pete and his dog, Maggie.
Their strength, tragic loss, love, fierce determination, and dedication were so powerful that I was crying before I began the first chapter. I am heading in to chapter 7 and if I did not have to make dinner for my family, I would put on my jammies and read all night.

Take my hand
Hold it tight
Guide me through my dream tonight……
I close my eyes,but yet I see
My true love walking ahead of me.
I cry out your name.
Each dream the same.
The rooms are empty, the halls are bare.
Your shadow does not linger there.
Make me stand
I will not fight, but I won’t find you in my dream tonight…..
The storm has arrived
I know it well
Will you appear?
Only time will tell.

Sometimes I thought I was headed somewhere for me,
but then I’ve seen,
it was always for another,
I’m so blessed to be your mother,
right from the start,
you’re the smile that fills my heart,
everything I have and will do,
it’s always been,always been for you.

I have the sniffles, I have a cold, but I promised my daughter and her two children we would venture out for a couple of hours to shop at Walmart. As I drove back from work, the wind was blowing and snow was twirling. I was thinking of the lack of sleep I got the night before and I realized that more than anything I wanted to have some fun.
So we had Valentine fun! We picked out pretty red polish and looked at pink and red flowers. We let the babies choose heart shaped balloons, and pink frosted, sprinkled cookies. We put coloring books, crayons,and stickers in the cart. Red juice and freshly ground coffee went in too.
As we drove home, I thought some vapo-rub and something warm to eat would be a nice ending. But having them ask me to color with them and getting hugs and big kisses gave my heart a warmer feeling all filled with love. That was the best ending.

I’m looking out at you. You are looking in at me………What do you see?
I stare at you. You stare at me. Who could I be?
Something about me must have been written down in time.
May you find whatever I left behind.
