My girls

These are my girls...all three of them. As most of you know, our current situation requires us to be creative and committed to each other more than most. The distance at times seems to be another world, but then I am reminded of how much I love all of them and how much they are part of my every day life. Ellie is such a bright and beautiful little girl who reminds me of her mom on almost every occasion. She tickles my funny bone like no other and brings me pure joy as I watch her grow into a whole person. She is going to be such a force in the world that I hope all of you are prepared. Cagney...what can I say except I love that girl. She is soft, sweet and a little pathetic in her quest for food! I love how she hops when you walk in the door and rolls her face in the dirt just because she can.

Lastly, Melissa is the love of my life...she is my "list." Years ago I wrote a list of all the traits that would make my idea partner and then Melissa came into my life. She is funny, SMART, kind, strong and gentle (I know that may not make any sense). I am so grateful to have these three females as my family, and I want to scream it from the roof tops! I waited my entire adult life to have a relationship and now that I have a family I feel it stronger than anything.

I miss my family and can't wait to see them, hold them and give out kisses! I pray for a day to come when we are all actually in the same space, holding, kissing and loving each other.

Nope, I totally get the "gentle and strong." The best partners are like that. :)
