this is a photo i took of my niece raven [on the left] and her girlfriend during the christmas holidays. first of all, let me say just how much i love my niece. she’s been such a big part of my life all of her life AND she has totally heard me out with regard to my healing process. we’ve spoken candidly about pretty much everything regarding my past and my recovery. she’s been a big reason i want to be in the world in this new and improved way. thank you raven. i love you sweetheart. may this 17th year of yours be one of your best ever!
now, how cute is her girlfriend! AND… how wonderful is it that they can be “OUT” and hanging with our family? if that’s not a sign that things really can and are changing then i don’t know what is. i think the first few girlfriends i brought home during college were “just friends,” to my family if you know what i mean. i LOVE that raven’s generation is so open regarding the topic of love. here’s to everyone and the beautiful truth that there’s someone for everyone!
peace + love + laughter + healing, -kathleen.
