Ten Years

Brian.
Usually on July 21st, I write a letter to Andrew.  I’ve written letters of anger and forgiveness and everything in between.  Last year I reflected on how sometimes today looms, and that certainly happened this year.  I’ve been well aware of the fact that today is the 10 year mark of when I was first sexually violated.
But I’ve become aware of something else as well. I’ve become aware that I don’t want to write letters to Andrew anymore.  I have said everything I need to say to him at this point.  But I have some things to say to you.  And today is a good day to say those things.
Thank you for choosing me when I made it difficult.  Thank you for realizing that I am more than this experience,  even though it informs my volunteerism and career path.  Thank you for healing hugs and secure snuggles and comforting kisses.  I look forward to going to the Marina tonight and making good memories with you and Val.  Your love heals me.
I can’t wait to be your wife.
Sherrie-Lee.
