What really matters
After reading Rosie O’Donnell’s “For the Love of Pat” [R Family, September 14], I wanted nothing more than to give her a great big hug–partly to comfort her because she has experienced such significant loss, and partly to thank her for reminding us all of what really matters. My girlfriend and I are raising 19-month-old triplets, and we just opened our own business with the hope of giving our kids a good life. I haven’t slept in months, worrying about paying oar bills and whether opening our business was the right decision. Well, thanks to Rosie, I will sleep well tonight knowing that tomorrow morning my mother is taking me and the kids out to breakfast. Rosie reminds us that, famous or not, gay or straight, rich or poor, all the money in the world is meaningless if we don’t have our loved ones beside us.
