I was trying to sleep in the back seat of the van but got distracted by my thoughts. I was thinking about how much I’ve loved this time of year. As a kid, it was the best time of year.

My family always celebrated my birthday and Thanksgiving together. I loved it. I associate love, warmth, and family with this time of year. Even though I have those positive memories, it forever changed 12 years ago. I started tearing up thinking about it. Some circumstances occurred which shattered relationships, relationships which will never be the same again. Some I’m not sure if they can be mended.

It’s crazy that even 12 years later that ache feels the same as if it just happened…
