The past few weeks have been surreal, filled with anxiety, disappointments and as someone I respect described it a sense of “anticipatory grief.”
Have women been worrying about this since time began?
Once you get married, and are sharing space with a person every day, it’s easy for those kinds of letters to fall by the wayside.

You’ll be glad you did.
At my stage in life, one of my measures of a person’s greatness is whether they treasure the friends they made before they were “somebody.”
Life choices. Divine intervention or mere coincidence?
