“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Happy Birthday!

Six years ago I was halfway through a midnight shift when I got the call from my wife that "I think my water just broke." I rushed home, loaded her in the car & we headed in a tizzy to the hospital - to end up waiting for twelve hours til this little guy decided to show up.

Fast-forward up to today.

Smart, funny, curious, sensitive, adventurous, and so many other things - everything I could have hoped for and more. Apparently our "make it up as you go along" parenting style hasn't been a failure.

Happy birthday Jacob - I am so grateful that I get to share in the journey of your life.

Ah, the times you have ahead... I think I'm glad mine are all grown up.

And I get to help a friend with his, but don't have to listen to them at night!
