Last year I wrote this letter to 2010 asking for a little more sunshine in 2011. It wasn't instant but as the year began, the sun started to come out. Slowly. And after a year of clouds, sunshine felt better than I remembered it. We got rid of a couple people this year and added some people this year and the changes have been unreal. Tod's skin no longer has that grayish color and our conversations at night involve more laughter and less tears. Life isn't perfect but fear and anxiety have subsided.

You weren't easy on everyone, though. People we love really struggled with you. Please tell to 2012 to go easy on them. Now they need some sunshine. Please send some asap.
Finally, thank you for a job. Thank you for the boys. Thanks for cars that run and a house that's warm. Thank you for health and little tragedy this year. Thanks for everything; you came just in time.
|Christmas 2011 - worlds away from Christmas 2010. Knock on wood.
