Very contemplative day. So glad I went to the memorial for Wanda Kotte. It was really a wonderful service. It was packed with so many people. What an amazing woman she was. I was blessed to call her friend.
I was feeling pretty "meh" after the service and had almost talked myself out of going to the Bremerton Family YMCA. I am really glad I pushed myself because it was where I needed to be for so many reasons. I was able to sort through some things that have been really eating at me. With the help, kindness, and attentive ear of Bevin, I was able to process some things on which I needed a decidedly female perspective.
I was also able to discuss something of deep concern with a male friend, who was kind enough to give me an honest opinion and some trusted advice. I even ended up with the promise of a dinner date down the road, which pleased me to no end.
