There have been many kind things that people have done for me, and I hope I repaid the kindness. I think I did, whether it was to that person or through paying it forward.
There was Clover, who came over to my house when I was doing the IVF, to clean it and give me shots in the fanny every day. Who cried with me when I lost the babies. Who remembered me and my pain weeks after others had stopped commiserating with me. Who shares her kids with me. Who’s been the most amazing friend a girl could ever hope to have.
There’s Jehara, who conspired with my sister Izzybella to get me through the legal mechanics of getting my name changed. Who gave me a chance to act in front of an audience. Who gave me the opportunity to help write a play. Who’s there for me any time I need her.
There’s the incomparable Izzybella, of course, who has been there for me every day of her life since she was the greatest birthday present I ever got.
And I’ve blogged about it all. I am aware of how blessed I am in my family and friends, and hope they always know it.
