Ok, three gifts that might never have been…
55. Me. My father had a vasectomy quite a while before I was conceived. My mother thought I was a cold.
56. When she conceived a baby, my good friend’s husband lobbied pretty hard for her to have an abortion. She talked to me about it. I told her I was pretty much the most unwanted baby on the planet back in the day, and I turned out ok. Her amazingly fine son is thirteen now.
57. I would never have met my husband if my friend, Louise, and I hadn’t moseyed on down to the Cowboy Saloon one Monday evening in 1986 to take a free country line dance lesson. Ray and his friend, Chris, were the instructors. Ray and I are still together -and so are Chris and Louise!
