To say that I love my daughter (or she me) is only the beginning. There are so many layers to who we are as women today, October 11, 2009.
In addition to being my daughter's 24th birthday, it is also National Coming Out Day and as part of that celebration and commemoration, I joined a movement that utilized the automatic fb status update device. The status update:
Deborah Xxxxx is a lesbian. It is National Coming Out Day and I pledge to have heartfelt conversations for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.
The status ran for a few days leading up to and then of course, including today. My daughter took a few moments out of her celebratory week to comment on my status:
Danielle Xxxxx U GO GIRL!!! I LOVE AND RESPECT U!!!!! YAY
Yesterday at 8:49pm
Like I said yesterday, my story is evolving and I am beyond overjoyed that my daughter plays an active role in that evolution. My head, it spins.
Happy, happy, joy, joy to my girl, daughter, and friend.
