it’s one of those ugly days
When I was getting my first communion we were seated in front of church for everyone to see. We were all dressed in white lacy dresses and dolled up. Everyone wore these white rose boutonnieres and when we had to stand to speak, my boutonniere turned upside down.
This had to be the one moment where I realized I was different. It didn’t make me sad; other things make me sad. I miss a lot of things.
