Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
As a military spouse and mother of two military brats, I often feel like the black sheep in my military neighborhood because I wasn’t raised in the military.

I never imagined myself being married to a sailor.
