Hello again! I hope you still have a family of sorts you can enjoy Thanksgiving with. I am acutely aware of those who don’t. In fact I sacrificed seeing my only brother and his extended family again after I came out as transgender to him.
I seemingly have an embarrassment of riches now. Starting with my partner Liz, my daughter, my grand kids and an ever widening group of accepting friends.
In the midst of all of this though, I still wonder why I still have a difficult time on occasion accepting what I have.
Last night was a good example. Approximately two thirty in the morning, I found myself wide awake and thinking about Thanksgiving. In addition, I have a tendency to sleep with the Hallmark cable television channel on. Somehow, I am ashamed to say a few of the movies have driven me to tears. It happened last night.
As I internally churned, I finally came to the conclusion I should do more embracing of who I am. Being weepy on occasion is just fine. Especially after the life I led before when I never cried.
Finally, I ended up going full circle back to Thanksgiving and who I have become.
Before I go though, I need to thank to Mickie, Trish and Zena who commented on the blog through Facebook! Zena brought back a few ancient memories of me showing up to a dinner at her house in heels, hose and a short skirt. Needless to say, it was many years ago! Better yet, I still was allowed to eat :).
Again, I can’t say enough how much how much I appreciate all of you!
