1: My Mom always believed in me. She was the most unselfish person in this world. On a day when she needed me to stay by her side she told me to go. Go get into fire school. "You can do it," she said. I went and failed because I couldn't pull the dummy. I couldn't bare to go home and tell my precious Mama that I didn't do it. I didn't want her to be sad like I was. But when I finally told her she laughed at me. I told her that I was glad that she thought it was funny because I didn't see the humor in it. But never the less it was good to see her smile. She told me to go pull Tommy around the yard and I would be able to do it next time. I didn't pull my big dummy brother around the yard, but I didn't give up. I went back and tried it again. I made it... I didn't give up... I not only made it into school, but I made it through the whole thing. Thanks to my Mom for seeing me through it all. I love you Mama, and I'm so glad I didn't make it the first time because I got to spend more time with you!! God sure does know what He is doing. Just goes to show you that He has our best interests at heart. | They don't call him FAT Bastard for nothing...

5: This day was pure HELL! It was our first Saturday at school. They had to call rescue for the first time. We lost two guys, and had Jennifer pass out. It was HOT enough outside without all that bunker gear on.
