Story Inspiration: His Heart

I see them as a long-time couple. The one on the left has just seen something that reminded him of his mother who they buried two months earlier. He’s still grieving, and when the emotions overwhelm him, he turns to the one man he loves more than anything, his rock, his salvation, his heart.


Story Inspiration: Love is Love 🖤

They were married exactly one year after the US Supreme Court legalized gay marriage. They’d been waiting so long for that moment: to be legally wed and to share that special occasion with all their friends and families. Everything turned out beautifully, and they couldn’t have been happier. Now they keep this framed picture hanging over the fireplace in their living room so they can always remember how wonderful they felt on that day and how very happy they are to be married every single day since.

Quote From My Life: Words Matter

(c), vesmil 2011

It’s been a long week. Maybe the lack of sleep is getting to me, or maybe I’m just feeling the need to vent a little. In either case, here’s one from my own life today.

“When your partner’s mom is in a serious car crash, is taken by helicopter to the hospital, has a 14 hour surgery, and is in the ICU, you are reminded how important the words “spouse” and “mother-in-law” are and how much it sucks when you can’t legally use them.”
