Okay this might sound like an odd topic but here goes. I have been "out" to my family since Jan '04, well out to everyone but my grandmother. At the time everyone felt that I should just let her think I was still "normal" even though my marriage was ending. She knew I was living with another girl but thought it was a roommate situation. Over the years I have dropped hints but never came right out and said anything. I finally decided to tell her the truth because she is the only one I really have left in the grandparent category anymore. When I did tell her the only response I got was "you know the Bible says its wrong. I don't condone it but I want you to be happy & if she makes you happy that is great." She then went on to tell me since I lived so close to California I should just head there & get married. I was floored. All these years I could have had another support system but my brother & father felt I shouldn't tell here. My reason for waiting at the time was she had a serious heart condition & just when she got well her husband (step-grandfather) was diagnosed with cancer. He is better now & so is she so I felt it was time to out myself. I felt a huge well of relief. Has anyone else gone through this? I feel like I'm still finding my way and can't tell the forest from the trees

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
