Full of Grace

1.  Martha asked me to marry her.

2.  Emergency room personnel.   Seriously, huge props to the men and women who can so calmly deal with other folk's medical emergencies.    Actually I am eternally grateful for all medical professionals.   So, so thankful they are in the world.

3.  Having a quick visit with my sister.  - as we know, quickies can satisfy an immediate need, but I am longing for a much much deeper communion with her - which will happen toward the end of July.

4.  Celebrating with my niece who won a Clio award - the equivalent of an Oscar in advertising.  Quite the big deal.

5.  I said yes.

    Seriously, though, congratulations! I'm so delighted that some of the gay people I know are able to take advantage of our new status. Bring on the social security!!!

    1. I am rushing into this, aren't I?

      And yes, there is nothing romantic going on here. (god forbid my partner have a romantic bone in her body) It is all about the benefits, which are huge. I really don't see how this inequality between states can continue much longer. But then - what will YOU do?

  6. I am a little weepy here. Not because of the proposal, but because I know what this means in terms of you turning the page. I believe I join both your mother and Daphne in wishing you every happiness.
