sonoma, the uncs and a birthday

so the uncs and i have been in sonoma since before the 4th and we have been reaquainting ourselves with each other.
we have been wine tasting, hiking, running, eating everything in sight. i love this man. his name is michael btw and he, as a young stupid 23 years old took the risk after my parents were killed and adopted me as a 10 year old.
now: think of yourself as a 23 year old. who in the fuck would adopt, take responsibilty for a child? a child who was grieving, sullen,angry?
but thinking about it now as an adult, i know why he did. he is my mother's brother and he wanted no one else raising me.
i know this was not easy for him. he had to give up privacy, he had to give up his life for me least for awhile. i became the center of his life. his reason for living...and he became the center of mine. i owe my life to him. he saved me. he is the constant. he is barometer. i will care for him and love him all of my days.
i love you uncle michael: happy birthday!

Ty you're back :)

Damn it's been ages. I don't really blog anymore but I'm having a lazy morning in bed and was trying to find an old blog post and noticed you posted from my blog list. Too many of the old bloggers have moved on and stopped blogging :(

Best of luck with your licensing exams. And hope you had a great time in Sonoma.

My Aunt took me in at 8 and so I know what your taking about.. although my parents are slive, they couldn't really afford me so it's not the same but I owe alot of my successes in life to her.
