Talking late at night, her voice was a reminder that I still had someone close. We can both take a step back and view things logically, at least I think we can. And so we did that. The gratitude I feel is more than anyone knows.
"I needed a marker for the change."
I'm glad I'm not the only one that needed the new year. And now we move forward, and seeing her chutzpah makes me want to have more of my own.
