Happy Birthday to FoxyJ

Today is FoxyJ's birthday, the last of her twentysomethings (and I don't think she'll mind me saying so). FoxyJ is a great person, by which I mean not only is she capable of doing great things, but she has proven said capability by doing countless great things. Our children are proof of FoxyJ's capability, not only to bear them in the first place (which was no small feat), but to raise them in the conscientious way she does. Yes, I raise them too, but mostly I just follow her lead, as I do in so many things. A week from tomorrow FoxyJ will prove another capability she has when she defends her master's thesis at BYU. In her willingness to marry a gay man, to do everything in her power to make that marriage work, to continue to be his friend after he pulled the rug out from under her life, to work to make this new life the best possible for her and her children, she has proven and continues to prove that she is capable of doing hard things.

If you know and love FoxyJ or if you're one of the many people who love her without even knowing her, today would be a great day to remind her of your love. As for me, I love her deeply, and I hope she knows that.
