The words here are about my
life as the wife of a now
retired Soldier. I live on a small ranch in Texas, and my
experiences here craft the
words I use to express my
life. The sacrifices, challenges, and the deeply satisfying rewards of being the wife of such a man influence them as well. I live in a beautiful and peaceful place, and it is great solace and comfort when I face life and the challenges of a complicated and stressed world. So I have titled my writings "From the Ranch."
My friend Fahim Khairy has set up a new facebook page, and it has phenomenal pictures of Afghanistan and her people. He has also written a novel with characters from his country. The children of Afghanistan are so beautiful, and when violence is not disrupting their lives smiles are upon their faces. The pictures of children there tug at my heart. I wish for their protection and provision for all their needs. If you love beautiful photography, if you have spent time in service in this country, if you know who your neighbor is, you will love this new facebook page!
