Today I learned a new phrase. Actually I can now say "Steve is my friend" and "Steve is my husband" in Russian. But then I learned another significant little phrase "Ya tribere lublu". Since I don't read or write in Cryllic, you'll have to do with my Anglicized translation of "I love you."
There's a lot of things I do wrong. My house is still a mess, I'm often very self-centered and I really like junk food. But today my dear lovely friend gave me a hug and told me she loves me. That was pretty special. And then I learned the Russian phrase and said it back to her. I am so blessed by the presence of my dear new friend in my life. :)
