Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker TheAngelsWings: What has someone said to you/done for you relatively recently that really touched you?

I am fortunate to have lots of thoughtful people in my life, who regularly move me with their kindness and generosity. Most recently, we had some friends over for a cookout Saturday night—my oldest friend A and his soon-to-be husband, and his BFF, Ms. A, with whom I've been friends since high school, and her husband. The next day, Ms. A told me on the phone that she never wants to leave when she visits, because our home feels so welcoming.

CaitieCat once said the same thing when she visited, and I always remember it.

It means a lot to me that my family of choice feels welcome and loved in the home Iain and I have made.
