So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

post(ing) secret(s)

my own secret: 

my mom didn't tell me or my brother when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  i was away at college, and my brother was distant back then.  

she told us later, after everything had been "taken care of."  when she told us, i was initially upset.  in retrospect, i respect her strength and resolve.  it takes a lot of both to keep secrets, and we were all better off for it.  

i'm a firm believer that most secrets, if kept, hurt no one.
