Hi Christine, thank you for taking the time to leave a response. I always appreciate honest feedback on how my writing is being perceived. I think your feedback and that of other readers have helped me see where I could phrase this differently and be more aware of cultural sensitivities. I am neither Sandra not Beth and am lucky enough to be with a partner who does exhibit all the same qualities as Beth but I thank you for your thoughts nonetheless.
