you and me
I shared my 'me' and you gave me your 'you' and we became 'us'. We became an 'us' that had lines and edges and soft corners and overlap and space.
Opening my heart meant welcoming my ex-husband and his partner completely into family celebrations that I had previously shared with my children on my own.
I’m totally okay with admitting that as a teen, much of my time was spent in the land of the lost. And it was fun. Lots of fun.
