You are so right. All the bumps and bruises, ups and downs, have made us who we are today. Would we really want to be someone other than who we are? Could we have changed our future?
Most of us count our blessing as part of this journey. With out the trials, we'd have missed out on them.
I got so much out of your writing--a fresh look at letting the past go, treasuring the good things and taking courage to move forward to God only knows where.

Good luck in the contest with your wonderful entry.

I really like this. I like the spirit you wrote it in. So honest, so humble , so forgiving and yet finally accepting yourself exactly how you are. That is why you are loved so well by your partner. You are good at being you.

Hi Teresa,

A great job with this one. Certainly the best one I think I've read and I'm almost through all of them now.

There are nice touches of humour in here, along with the insight and a fine sense of acceptance. Moving forward is the key in life.

All the best
G

Well written, very much to prompt. I read a few of your reviews, and though I used to say I thought I was born too late, this is not a bad moment in history. Now if we can work on tomorrow...Excellent post.

Beautifully written. You incorporated the questions very well into the fabric of the story.
A very down-to-earth style of writing that appealed to me. Good luck in the contest.

I really enjoyed reading this most delightful little essay, Teresa. This reads like something someone would write in a journal. I like the few touches of humor here and there and could have read more!
My best to you in the contest.
Connie

This meets the contest requirements beautifully. This is such an inspiring and uplifting read as you have turned all the proverbial lemons into lemonade - something which we all should do in order to experience grace in aging and a happy life. I wish you all the best in the voting and thank you very much for sharing it.

I really like this talk with your younger self. It's really good way to identify the wrongs and rights and accepting yourself as the person you are today that is making you happy. You humor and great imagery
I really enjoyed this read

good luck in the contest

"Speaking of the teen-aged years, do not, I repeat DO NOT, get into a brawl with Sherry over some stupid boy." If only we could really re-do life over.

I appreciate your candor. My daughter married her life partner and they are very happy together. I had no clue that she was gay until she told me when she was almost 18-years-old. I am a very down to earth mom and not prejudice. We have a close relationship and she told me when she was ready. For me, nothing changed. My baby still my baby and she will until I die. She is grown woman now but she is still my baby. :)

This is the second entry I read for this contest and they are both outstanding. Great job, Teresa!

    I wish I could have come out at 18, but as I said in the story, I wouldn't have my 2 kids:)

    Thanks Gypsy for saying this is outstanding!
