Two Years Later

Until you have looked at the world and have been ready to walk away from all of it, you don't understand suicide.

Until you have seen this view and then made the frightening yet relieving decision to stay and make this world your home again, you don't understand how foreign it can feel.

Until you have felt these things and yet come back to Life, you can't possibly grasp how terrifying is the thought of returning to that wilderness even one more time.

It's so nice that you have made the turn. Coming at you is better than watching going away from you. You are loved dearly.

Hm, I think that dad guy DOES like you--I agree with Melissa! :) You know what? You've got SO MUCH support, it's crazy. :) We all love you so darn much. Change in how we respond to things is a good thing and... well, I'm looking forward to 2007. That's in two years. :)
