After 20 years, I decided to suck up and face my fear of going back to school and being around large groups of people and work towards getting my Bachelors of Science degree in Music Therapy. I have met some of the most magnificent and beautiful people to expand my circle of people to do messed up thing with.
The first of which-- Megan.
Seth. I kinda adopted Seth as one of my kids, but then realized that he was making me feel like I had a kid when I was 16 and I wasn't cool with that. We were talking about something one day and he said, "You are like the coolest Aunt that I never had and always wanted".. Those simple words made my heart overflow. He took me out of the teen pregnancy category and smoothly moved me into the cool Aunt status and for that he is absolutely beautiful. I really hope that he got his new shoes for Christmas because if he didn't, I might have to buy him a pair JUST for that simple gesture. I'm going to miss trying to figure out the 0_o moments we had in a couple of our classes.
Then there is Sherry. My sistah and also my co-blogger. She is one of only a few people who can turn me into a talking cricket aka Jiminy Cricket. There is not enough e-paper to tell all the messed up things we have done and talked about. But we know, and that is what matters.
Of course there are about a million other people whom I am thankful for. Some of these friendships are repaired friendships from over the years and we have been able to pick up like we never lost touch. So tomorrow night, at midnight (if I am awake) I will be raising my glass to all of you who have been a part of my life over the year. Some of you had no clue how much you were helping me overcome struggles I have had for years, and that is what makes this post all that more beautiful! Happy New Year!
