That Rara is loved

Rara gets out of prison in a few weeks!” I reminded my husband last night.

He pondered this briefly. “That means I should write her now, huh? So you can send my letter with yours?”


He sat down at my computer to write.

I putted about as he wrote.

Several hours later, he asked me to peek at his letter and confirm its appropriateness.

I read the first page and laughed.





Naturally, I added a p.p.p.s. to my letter. I gave an alternative view of the evening’s events. (Unfortunately, no stick figures were included in the making of said postscript.)

I ended my final postscript with a loving note about the rest of my husband’s letter, which reminded me how much his thoughtful words moved me long before we dated.

My husband and I disagreed on some details, I concluded, but were in complete consensus where it counts:

That she is loved.

    Her last letter had a free flying dino on it. Made me cry. Can’t wait for her to be out …

      Her last letter here had a few different cards for D on account of how many big moments were upcoming. One had dino Rara and D holding hands; he treated it so tenderly, I choked up.

      Ditto your “can’t wait.” I was almost asleep in the middle of the night when it hit me she’s out this month. It was hard to fall asleep again after thinking that.

    Well done!

      Thanks! This morning, I actually spent an hour going through all my old stick figure posts. Sometimes a crappy stick figure drawing says it better than fifty of my verbose paragraphs. 🙂

    About fifteen years ago I grew very close to “a friend of a friend” who ended up in prison under what sounds like similar circumstances. She took a plea rather than fight a legal battle she didn’t think she could win. We grew close while she was in prison and I was one of the many who looked after her children. I learned a lot during that time and witnessed firsthand that without a lot of support it’s pretty hard to make it after release. I think that the Go Fund Me page and the warmth and love you’re sharing is very important–vital! What a very sad story. I hope for a better future.

    Thanks for the reminder – I need to get my donation posted! Do you know where she’ll be going after she’s out? What her plans are?
