I got this hat for being one of the first couple hundred people to register for this marathon. I think the hat is very cool. You can see from the picture that I am very very tired. I really am very very tired. Yesterday was a long day. Lots of work, lots of trying to let go of worrying about young men and women dying in helicopters. Let me just say that I respect my son and his adult decision to do what he is doing. He is truly doing what he wants to do. He may be "my baby boy", but I am keenly aware that he is a man. A grown man who I respect and love with all my heart. You cannot keep the people you love (particularly menfolk) safe. If it were up to mothers, all sons would be librarians, but not all men should be librarians. I so appreciate your prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
