1. Hi There,

    I am in the middle of a really emotional wrestle with myself. I have two beautiful daughters, one who is married with 2 children and the other is living in London, has tattoos and piercings. She has come home (to Australia) for a while and she looks a certain way that makes her different. why does this break my heart?

    My friends, extended family all love her unconditionally associated Im, but I see she has painted herself into this pidgeon hole and it kills me. WHY!!!

    She is happy, her attitude is good, she is the same beautiful girl I have always loved. I am sitting here crying and I cant for the life of me work out why. Till I work out why I cant work on fixing it.

    Can anyone help??


  2. So enjoying the story telling. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I am loving this series, Cheri and Annemarie! To be honest I have never been much for big tattoos. Then when my x cheated on me, he got a huge one to remind him of his loss of integrity (he didn’t care that it also reminded me of his betrayal, but that’s another story…) So that didn’t help my perception.

    Fast forward three years and I was approached online by a man who has his right arm sleeved and a large tattoo on his left arm. I almost didn’t respond to him due to my past perceptions. I know, shame on me. But I ‘heard’ God tell me not to judge a book by its cover. So I listened. We are now three months into our relationship and I’m really glad I listened.

    But what struck me today, as I read, was the story theme. When I asked him about his sleeve, he told me that it told the story of his music career (he’s a professional rock musician). While the tattoos are still not my favorite thing, they are a part of him and they tell the story of a big part of his life. And I wouldn’t have him any other way.
