When I realised that I've found a man who loves and supports me in life, after quite a few horrible encounters. I'm very privileged now, it took a long time and I've been abused emotionally and physically in the past. I'm so grateful.
I am in my 70's and I believe some of the happiest moments I have had was going to dance places and dancing to good bands playing good country music. There isn't much I enjoyed more than that. I loved it.
What a lovely memory to have of your dad and swimming on the reef with what no doubt has imprinted on your mind from when you were seven. You live in a beautiful part of the world, there must be so many memories you have, but I bet none so precious as with your dad.
