  • Losing you has changed me.

    I didn't notice until just now, while I was watching this movie, Take This Waltz, and there was a character who was an alcoholic and they had a party for her, to celebrate a year of her sobriety. And all I could think of was how badly I wished that we were having a party like that for you this year. Instead, we are thinking "One year since she went into the hospital, one year since she never came home, one year since we lost her." And I started to cry.

    It kind of ruined the movie for me.
