For Jodi



Does this help explain anything to you about your husband?







Be sure to read the comments about this particular coat when Daniel wore it at this age. It saved his life!

Note: This is a child with a TOY gun. :) He is such a cutie. I have totally seen Karsyn with that tongue pushing lip out expression too.

Mom just recognized THE COAT. When Danile was Darin's size I was busy working around a lake near our home. Daniel got our of site about 20 yeards behind me. I heard Doni yell and saw Daniel floating in this life saving blue Jacket, face down in a Feburary cold pond,. I know I set a world record for the 20 yard flight, leaped into the waste deep water grabed Daniel and brought him to shore. The cold water casued Daniel to hold his breath (or an angel, I cannot be sure). He was fine. Doni's response to the whole scene: Daddy, I would have jumped in to save him, but then we would have BOTH DROWNED!

I suspect that these pictures were never shown to me so I would have no idea what I was getting into right? LOL :) My husband sure was a cute little boy.

Sorry Jodi, but your excuse doesn't fly. Remember when you were TWELVE? You were being interviewed in front of the entire church by a traveling preacher who asked you what your plans were for life. You declared confidently then "I'm going to marry Darin". I am forever greatful for that choice...but you did know what you were getting in to!

You are right I did, and I am greatful every day for it :).
