thanks for the journal rec!
i bought one for one of my skids and had dh bring it to her when he saw her tonight. their mom had put down their aging cat earlier today and dh said she already used the journal to write a nice poem about him.
"I've always followed my father's advice: he told me, first to always keep my word and, second, to never insult anybody unintentionally. If I insult you, you can be goddamn sure I intend to. And, third, he told me not to go around looking for trouble." -John Wayne
