My four-year-old son gave me a crayon drawing of me that he'd made for Mothers' Day.  It was beautiful!  Perhaps because I realize the love he put into that drawing I have imbued it with greater value than might otherwise be the case.  I prefer to think it's beautiful because my son is a budding ...

In Prince William County, Virginia, the law s...
I have been around mostly men my entire life and I wouldn't have it any other way! I grew up with three older brothers and my father was an active part of my life.
