I know, we all just hate to write checks and pay bills. But I’ve had a check I’ve just never gotten around to writing. Well, at least until early last month when I got off my dead rear end and just did it. Not because I dreaded doing it, but because I was procrastinating. And apparently for no good reason. But once I did, and it was in the mail, I have constantly been checking to see when it cleared. Well, it finally did yesterday. The State of Maryland deposited the check I wrote, and sent along with the paperwork; to get my birth certificate changed. Hopefully in a week or two, I will have that official recognition that I am no longer who I was in my early life. I will now be me, the me that has always been there I guess; but was never smart enough to see it and figure it out. Well, time for the USPS to up their game and get the mail to me. 🙂

Congrats Michelle! I’ll blow the balloons here for you and let them fly free in honour of your true identity.

Wow Jill, thank you so much. That is a great idea, imagine if all of the transgender people put a balloon in the air on TDOV, or TDOR, and just let them drift in the wind. Wouldn’t be an in your face thing, just a nice peaceful reminder that we are out there, we do exist, and we are good people…. That is a great idea Jill. Hugs, Michelle

There are so many little things we can do to show respect to our sisters and brothers. Seems like respect is in short supply a lot these days. I’ve got six pink balloons ready to go hon in your honour.

Jill, you are absolutely correct. Respect everywhere seems to be a rare commodity. And that is so sad given all that people have the capacity to offer one another. Hopefully that makes a comeback as a nature course of events, and not through some catastrophic event. That is my hope anyway. And hopes and dreams do help to sustain us…. Hugs, Michelle
