Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

No, this is not going to be a post about the world ending in 2012.

Rather, it is a reflection on the ending of the first year where my sister was not alive. I know I said something about this at the end of 2010, where a woman made a comment about the first New Years without her son, but now we are approaching the end of the first year with no Niff. As of right now, I am not as upset as I was last year, and I even have plans to go out this New Years Eve. It is just crazy to think how quickly 2011 passed, and that is has been just over 16 months since Jenn’s passing (hard to even┬ácomprehend).


Now What?

So, the holidays have passed, and we have entered a new year. And I am not sure how to feel.

I have this odd feeling. I was so worried about facing Christmas, and now that it is over, I feel different. I was even worried about New Years. One woman at a support group my Mom and I went to made a statement one day, that really stuck with me (and I kinda wish it didn’t).
