Yes, I stand up for what's right. That has gotten me into trouble at work. In this SW Michigan culture, people don't tend to be assertive, so I really stand out like a sore thumb here.
I have a sweetheart/soulmate who is almost 15 years my jr. That's risky. But so far, so good. I'm back from Connecticut now; and this has been a wonderful week. Christmas day with him in our home was the best Christmas present I received. We sat on our sofa, drank coffee and just visited. We smiled at each other so much.He held my hand and gazed into my eyes a lot of the time. It was all very beautiful.January 13 will make six years of friendship that blossomed later into love.
