not-so-angry girl journal 08.31.2014

9:20am

i am fortunate to live at a time when it's perfectly okay for two men or two women who love each other to hold hands in public, especially in a jeepney.  not in the bus, nor in a train, but in a jeepney.

a jeepney allows people to face their co-passengers, whether they like it or not, and if you're stuck in traffic, that's a really long time to be holding hands or to be ashamed of who you are.  i am glad that people can be unapologetic and proud in a jeepney, holding the hands of the people they love and not be afraid of being persecuted.

these are great times.

i haven't met anyone, friend or lover, who felt so strongly about me, who can say to someone else, "hey, you're hurting Bels, so back the fuck off!" or, "why would anybody want to hurt Bels? she's such a sweet and loving person!"

nope, i haven't yet. it would be awesome though, if i did, because i know i would do it for them.

i could not have asked for a better set of friends, co-workers, team, family.  i am overwhelmed by the love i am getting that if i had a heart, it would be broken.  i am grateful, Lord, that i am blessed by Your Presence, through these people, in my life; and for the first time in so many years, i look out the window on the 27th of August and the sun is up.

thank You so much :)
