Kate is having a great day today. We even took a road trip to Lowes and the cemetery and she was fine. Basically she slept through most of the two meetings. I went to the cemetery because we are getting a marker for my brother's grave. Dale died just over a year ago. I remember him when he was Kate's age. He was a good kid with a soft heart. He had demons but was loved dearly. At birth we are all full of promise. Kate could be anything. I know great things are in store for her. I hope that the demons that haunt the world keep their distance. I plan to do all I can to keep her safe. Love is stronger than fear and hatred. Can a smile ward off a demon? How about this one?
