Some of the people I’ve connected the most strongly with in my years are other folks who had to lose or strain family relationships because of who they are. We made the choice to end the cycle. To heal up. To be an example. It’s tough going, but so, so worth it.
I’ve found a little family with you guys, so I have an ongoing series for us, Love Notes to Prodigals. Whenever I have a hard night or learn a hard lesson about building this crazy, glorious new life, I write a new one.
