    gold band from her bridegroom with his pledge of eternal love. In 1944 that same ring was placed on my grandmother's hand, followed in 1969 on my mother's and now it rests on mine. I look at this ring and, in silence, strain to hear the stories it has to tell. Some of them I...

    My Best Friend And My Boyfriend

    They are the only people in this world that make me feel like anything important. They are both my best friends and they listen to me when no one else will, they won't tell me I'm being stupid, or that I am taking it wrong, at least not in the moment.  They'll calm me down...

    Yes I Do.

    I don't have many material objects I consider precious. What  I do have is my Mom, Dad , my sweet Boo  and my EP friends. You guys know who you are.  I  think I have been blessed.
