Unfortunately more and more grandparents are raising their grandchildren due to drugs. A plethora of support groups have sprung up over the years due to this problem. And these are the folks who can least afford it. We all have small blessings, but often do not recognize them.

CG, I have found that when I have my slippers on, I shuffle around the house and slightly bent over. When I get up and put my shoes on, I stand up much straighter and walk like I have done all my life. When I have my shoes on, I can still run.

Those folks who stole into your house are the same ones who leave my wastebaskets full when I know I just emptied them. They sure get around.

Addie, it's not the shoes. Or slippers. It's a little something more...ahem...indelicate. Check your PMs.

Sitting here thankful that my marriage is now going to be legally recognized in NC. Now we will have the right to make medical decisions for each other. I won't have to fight his mother for 50% of the life that we've built together. The day after people in NC sent a clear message that my relationship and later marriage didn't deserve to be recognized, it was a kick in the gut, I had no idea how much it would effect me emotionally. This came after months of ads on the TV portraying us as sexual deviants, ads that insinuated that we were a danger to children, and that clergy would be stripped of their rights. It was a dark time for us. That following November, Maine voters gave our spirits the lift that they needed, and we chose there to get married in a place that our marriage would be welcome. Mainers didn't let us down, my small town welcomed us with open arms and people all over went out of their way to say congratulations. Now we're feeling a little love from NC and it feels good. Hopefully this is all over.

thanks for letting me spill my guts

You and Rob were the first folks I thought of when I heard the news. I know it has been a struggle for the both of you hoping against hope, that maybe your state would come around. Well, miracles do happen.

Good luck to the both of you. You both deserve all the happiness that has come your way.


And then there is this little angel that has been watching over the both of you.

Fantastic, Bakechef! Ya got me all teared up. One of these days all of our states will recognize human rights, and it looks like it might happen in our lifetime!
