2011 was a hard year. It started out well but kind of rocketed into terrible by the end. Obviously I'll remember this year as the one when my mother died. And that alone is enough to write the year off as a disaster. Then add on the week and a half spent in the psych hospital....
But there was good too. You all sent me to California. And, because of that, I was able to hold my mom's hand one last time and say goodbye to her. I will never be able to find the words capable of expressing what that means to me. You gave me something that I will never be able to adequately thank you for.
You give me hope. You give me faith in myself. You give me strength. You make me believe I'm capable of more than I can imagine.
Thank you. I hope your next year is filled with excitement and adventure and love and joy and self acceptance.
