I'd love to be the first to say goodbye to 2017. It was a year of sadness, of heartache, of pain, of fear, of misery and profound grief. I'm still figuring out the way to picking up the pieces of my heart that were shattered every which way in 2017. I know there has to be goodness for us around the corner. I know there has to be happiness, a light at the end of a dark, scary tunnel.
Thanks to all the friends and family (and perfect strangers, too) who helped my family get through the shittiest year of our lives. I hope I can offer you all payback of some sort— if only through my words.
Love and peace to you and your families in 2018!
