Happy New Year

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.


  1. 2011 was a pretty fucked up year for me, too, Heidi, also including the death of m mother as well as one other relative dying a week or so before my mother and another relative dying on Christmas. I am still reeling as I am sure you are, too. Here's hoping for a much better 2012 for everyone.

  2. I feel that we should THANK YOU for opening up your life to us, sharing with us all the terrible things that you have gone through and allowing us to be part of the precious moments with your mother. I hope 2012 is a good year for have started the process and I hope the pace PICKS up so you can have a great year in 2012

  3. It's about time life cut you a break, and if I had any control over it, I'd throw down on your behalf.
