Cocktails for a Cause

Sometimes, the work of a volunteer is very very hard. This weekend, Friday and Saturday, there is a bar hop event in Ogunquit to gather volunteers.

I know. Cocktails for a cause.

If anyone is interested, please check in at 718 Main Street, Ogunquit. That's the campaign office. Tell them Sara sent you...

I'll be up in Downeast. Last weekend of the season there, and we'll be celebrating Walter's birthday, closing the place up, and generally having a good time.

Dear Sara,

I stumbled across your blog while google searching "having a lesbian sister". I first read the article by your SIL, and I just had to keep reading.
11 months ago, my younger, and only sister told me she was gay. And I wish I could say that I took it well, but I'd totally be lying. In fact, for some reason completely unknown to me, the news was a heavy blow. Over the last 11 months, I've been struggling. I even attended a support group. But it all just made me feel worse. It made me feel like, for no real reason, I just couldn't be happy for her. Which is awful because she's always happy for me, even when no one else is.
Your blog about your life has opened my eyes to a doorway I thought was closed forever. I don't know why, but I never imagined my lesbian sister becoming a wife and mother. (Maybe that's just me, or how we were raised) My spirits feel so lifted as I realize that life can be different and wonderful all at the same time.

Thanks for letting me peek into your life!
-Stefanie (Illinois)

Yea, Stephanie, for being willing to read, think, consider all that can be for your sister. Of course it's not easy and of course it will all be fine!

she can be a wife and mother, if she wants. being gay isn't a end- it's an acceptance of who you are, and loving someone.

it's about love, really. and how, really, how can that be bad?

Really, you just make me smile. There's really no one in our life who has ever just kinda "let it be fine"...
Life is just full of different possibilities and I really thank you for helping me see past myself and into someone else's lives.
