Puddles of Blossoms, Revised

On a whim I submitted a variation of this post to Segullah and they'd like to put it up in the next few weeks(!). I'll let you know when. Thanks for all of your sweet, wise comments.

What beautiful thoughts. Sam sounds like such an incredible husband. I'm so glad you have each other.

I just read an article in the BYU alumni magazine about teaching our kids tolerance that was right up this alley. I looked for the link and couldn't find it. Maybe it was only in print. I think there is always going to be some fear and apprehension in this area ---maybe people are extra defensive when they're a little unsure of things themselves? Anyway you are "laying the foundation of a great work". We love both of you and are behind you 100%

I love that you both have this unique way to sacrifice and love one another. It's really beautiful! Love to you both.

Sounds like the beginnings of a meaningful article (book?) on the subject. Very moving.

I enjoyed reading this. It is wonderful how a relationship grows and deepens.

Yeah Eboo! One of my all-time heroes.

It is amazing how marriage can make you a better person and teach you so much if you are selfless enough.

This was a beautiful post.

hmmm...makes me kinda think about my marrying a cattle man when I grew up vegetarian :) I am learning to support him in his meatiness too.

I've been thinking about this post a lot. I really appreciate it, Deja. I know this sounds weird, but the level of vulnerability you describe terrifies me. And so I'm impressed. And inspired.

Thank you.
