It's time for a script change.

I am thinking of embracing the notion that my donor dad is it. Wouldn't that be the ultimate mind trick? Poof. With a little wordsmithing, I could eradicate that whole pesky legacy of my "father" rejecting me. I could just be a kid who had a mom who found some sperm and had a baby. She had a husband and when she died, she let that man take care of her babies for a while until they wised up and left.

Even writing that last sentence sets me in a different frame of mind.

Wow, Kristy. I check this every once in a while, and I can't get over the weight of all this you've gone through this summer/fall. Seems like a wise shift in thinking to me. Thinking of you.

I like this idea a lot and think it calls for some kind of event or party or re-something. maybe just a short jaunt to seattle so we can share a bottle of bubbly? Commemorate a new start/story..... Lov eyou!

love this post. (veeeeerrrrry late reading it).

people don't often (or ever) get the chance to take the yucky parts out of their past. i say, go for it.
i kind of did that with the characters who have played my mothers throughout my history.
it has worked out quite well for me. : )

happy new year, mama. xoxo
