From my girl, TC …
Flashback to January 11, 2013 … People often ask if Christian is a “rebound relationship” for me. Ah, the dreaded term. You know, he even asked me himself once. Rebound relationship. What does that even mean? It sounds so insulting. It minimizes the importance of the relationship to pretty much nil, doesn’t it? It makes… Read More Rebound vs. slam dunk

She cuddles beside her fiance in the chilly theater, watching the movie … but not. She’d rather watch the image replay over and over in her mind of the man beside her, only hours ago, kneeling at her feet. She’s giddy and distracted by the new piece of glitter on her left hand.

Flashback to October 24, 2012… I’m missing you guys. But I’m still here, and I’m still listening. I’ve just been a little — uh — otherwise occupied. You see, I’m somewhat in heaven. But still grounded. It feels good. I have a companion. I’m experiencing some sunshine in my soul. It’s been so, so, so… Read More Grounded in paradise

Flashback to August 24, 2012… I’m starting my new life. I’ve been liberated. But now that the chains of abuse, neglect, and mistreatment are gone, at times I’m not quite sure what to do with myself. I’m unsure how to feel, how to love again. Am I doing it right? Maybe I don’t want to… Read More Back in the mix

Flashback to July 25, 2012 … I took off my ring today after more than ten years. All day, I kept brushing the inside of my fourth finger with my thumb and panicking that I had left my band somewhere … dropped it … lost it. It’s a strange sensation. A void. I thought I… Read More Bare
It’s Monday! Time for “Might Be a Mama!” You might be a mama if … You worry about your filthy kitchen floor–not because you’re embarrassed about the mess, but because you’re worried someone might eat the mess.
