I saw your post! He is beautiful. Congratulations! I have been so busy. I stop by every now and then and lurk around the forums, but I don't have a lot of extra time these days. How the heck are you?! We should get together when you've recuperated and are feeling up to it. Grace is wonderful! She's 15 months now and is a total love. It's a life changing experience for sure. :)
I hear you on your stepfather. Both of my parents did that crap -- but just to me, not my sister. Beat the hell out of me with a belt or whatever was handy that would hurt the worst. That's how my sister figured out it was okay to beat on me when she was frustrated. I wasn't allowed to defend myself or I'd get the hell beat out of me. I learned to distance myself from the pain . . . and to despise anyone so weak they had to resort to taking their anger out on someone in their control with physical abuse.
You've really brought yourself a long way away from it. That's strength. They're the weak ones.
I love making siggies and icons.
I was wondering if you want any.
I make them on anything you want.
Just send me the pics you want on it, tell me the colors you want, and any words you would like on it.
I will make one or a few.
