Giving Thanks

Without going into too much detail, I’ll just say I’ve spent the past two weeks recovering from surgery.  It wasn’t life-threatening, or cancer, or anything really major.  It did, however, cause an infection and a lot of pain and crying and clawing at whatever was nearby.

Throughout this recovery, Strutter has been by my side.  Her steadfast concern and warmth have been an incredible medicine, and it’s proven to me that I’ve found the right one.  If I wasn’t so goddamned poor (four days in a hospital is expensive), I’d be ring-shopping today. So this Thanksgiving, I’m dedicated the entire holiday to her.

Thank you, Brittney, for being who you are, and allowing me to fall in love with you.

  1. This post makes me smile. Except for the not-life-threatening, not-major, not-cancer surgery. Hope your recovery goes fast(er).

    I’m so happy that you’re happy … except when you’re happy you don’t write and your not writing makes me unhappy. And it’s all about me.

    So write more happy stuff 🙂

  2. oh, i’m sorry to hear you were not well, but i’m glad you’re ok! what a beautiful post. it makes my eyes well up with tears. :’)

    p.s. i would like to gently remind you that i STILL have not met her. or seen you in forever. so if you two want to come over for dinner, say the word, ok?
