After Mass we spent the rest of our quiet Sunday at home listening to the sound of the rainfall. It's a peaceful lonely sound, and we were missing Stan. The girls wear his shirts as jamies when he's gone. They always say the shirts "smell like dad". I'm sure they mean that in a good way. To fit the mood of the day we dug through the uniforms Stan left at home to find a little memento to use with today's photo. The hat, the anchor, the "USN", the big blue eyes all tell the story of today.
Chesterton Quote of the Day
"The principle expressed in the Prayer Book in the words 'for better, for worse'... is the principle that all noble things have to be paid for, even if you only pay for them with a promise."
