endings

If January is any indication of what 2011 will be, this will be a year of closures.

My stepdad's mother, who had been hanging on for years, finally passed. Services will be held in a couple weeks.

After nearly two years of anticipation, anxiety and the very worst kind of not understading, I will testify tomorrow about Lori's sanity. My goal for today is to not stress out so much that I wake up bald tomorrow.

Oh Steph, what a time you're having. I'm sending you a big virtual hug. I'll be thinking of you. x

Well, the thing is, without being overly blunt... E's passing is something of a relief. What she had for the last two or three years was no kind of life.

Likewise, having the trial over, will I *think* be a relief as well.

Ms. Moon said...

Yes. I think it will be a huge relief.

I will imagine we are all there together holding hands and if it helps, we will sing something soothing together. I wish you strength tomorrow.

I am relieved for you that she has opted not to attend her trial.

Deep breaths.

Thinking of you.
Peace,

I've thought of you all day. I hope you aren't bald; your hair is so beautiful.
