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."
There is a field on the property next to ours, and every year it produces a crop. Sometimes it is corn, sometimes it is cotton. This year it is cotton. It looks like it has been a great year for the cotton in South Texas!
You can see the white cotton boils in the field in the left of the picture.
