Hey, i am back. I wanted to say thanks for the prayers and the love, i love my new name(s). hope and loive. so sweet. thank you for being so kind.

i am doing better than i thought, the holiday. even surrounded by the pain, we felt it together, as a family yesterday....and NOOO drinking. I couldn't believe it. I was such a pessimist, lost in the past. We had the best day as a family, ever. Even with feeling the sadness of 20 years.

today i learned my uncle passed away last night. It was time for him. I am sad, but don't feel devistated. that is good.

I posted some awful stuff. i actually scheduled it to be posted, while I was out. Seeing it today hurt a lot. But not as much as I thought it would.

I feel bad that it is there, for everyone to read, but the pain for me isn't as bad as in the past. i think that is healing.

thanks for giving me a place to ramble on about my feelings today.

and for the friendship via the web.

and thanks for the prayers at Mile 191. that was so thoughtful. I usually hold my breath as I pass them. to think that you, a stranger, would pray for me. and that you would think of me. means the world. thanks.

so good. ♥
