Never underestimate the power that just an ounce of compassion and understanding can have on the soul of another individual.

It feels so freeing to be accepted and even welcomed for what you really are. Having only experienced this feeling from one person in my life (and God bless you, Josie!), it's just so wondrous, such a new experience, to be able to give voice, to articulate...and to be heard.

Compassion. Understanding. Love. Yes, love. That's what I wish to shower upon my children, and especially my best friend, no matter what. It's what she's shown me through this whole experience. It's the least that she deserves.

Thank you for that, Josie.

Tonight I told Michael--not totally directly, but made it pretty clear--what is going on. The first straight guy I've ever said anything to. And he didn't judge, he didn't back away, he accepted, he even welcomed me as a friend.

I've never experienced that before. And I am so grateful for it. I feel as though it chisels away another stone from my heart.
