A year that was
Author: Raine    Date: 12/27/2017 14:02:18

This is my last blog post of 2017. What a year it's been.

Exhausting, infuriating, aggravating, disgusting; Those are just a few words that come to mind. That said, we made it.

We made it.

Persistence and resistance work. I'll say I would like this to be over a lot faster than it is taking, but it is working. In the past year, I have learned that while we marinate in this stuff and have for well over a decade and a half, many others have opened up to me to share their horror at what we are witnessing in our body politic. I wish it were for better reasons, but better late than ever.

We are getting through this, as difficult as it is. It occurred to me a while back that this past year feels a lot like the dysfunction I had growing up. I never knew the coping tools I had would be put through such a test and in that way I am grateful that I have them. It's one of the reasons why I still say this cannot sustain. Abnormalities never do.

So in my last post of 2017, let me say to you what I said in our holiday card and elsewhere:

Whatever is beautiful, meaningful and brings you happiness, may it be yours today and always.


When you need a rest know that someone always has your back.
I love you blog Family.

and
Raine
