The Soldier and the Squirrel introduces children to the Purple Heart

through a loving story of a friendship between a newly wounded soldier

and Rocky the squirrel with his backyard friends. This story began as a

blog during my first year in bed after my incident. With much

encouragement, it is now a book and has been placed in the

Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum. Please watch the video

on the About page to learn for the Soldier & Rocky are changing children's

Newborn Father

A tiny hand envelops her father's thumb

 

Sensing the future through the ribs of his fingerprint

 

Holding it with a natural confidence

 

Despite months of grasping through an ocean of fluid

 

Longing for connection

 

He sneezes

 

She laughs

 

She looks

 

She stops

 She is theirs

Completely
A bond

 

Only they understand

 

Their love is as unique as a snowflake cut from Nature's hem

 

His voices bounce off her heart

 

She is home

 

He speaks of his angel

 

She searches his eyes

 

Bubbles blossom from between her lips

 

He guides her tiny hand to cradle his cheek

 

Closing his eyes

 

She breathes into his skin

 

The meaning of life is not only in the palm of his hand

 

it is holding it...
