The past is another country, I know: but why does that other country always have to be Saudi Arabia?
Three/maybe four days before epiphany your card came. ... and I love it. ... And thank you. In a year when I've been doubted so much, I don't think I've ever felt so under fire before, your very kind words are the kind of affirming words I needed.
Thank you, and for your friendship too. Very much love and very many hugs.
There was much sweeping up of tinsel and shiny dust - that which came off our 18 year old baubles and tree. Not all are that age as they've been added to over the years, but before the girl came we didn't really *do* Christmas. She was born on the 1st of Dec '99 and now she delights in the putting up of it with her Daddy. He was very silly when he came home with the tree.
I was all like, she's 3 weeks old, she cannot see the tree even.
"She can see the lights!" he was adamant. She was so teeny tiny and it was a very happy, silly moment.
1. Dear god, that took its time.
2. Aww, no problem, love.
3. She's **eighteen**???!!! Ack! The time! Where does the time go???
4. Saudi- because terrible things happen to gay people always.
