December 30, 2010: Spent with Christie and my friend Joseph. I hadn't seen Joe in 9 years. I cooked dinner for them and we had a pretty good night talking and laughing about the past and the present.
December 31, 2010: Spent the day with the woman who was like a mom to me and the girl who was my sister growing up. They got to meet Alice (Thumbelina is with her dad for the weekend). It was wonderful. Though 10 years have passed, it felt like no time at all. Honorary mama hasn't changed a bit, and Twin has grown up to be so beautiful (well, she always was). Her kids are adorable. Her oldest is just like mine, her carbon copy.
So, as I ring in 2011 tonight, I will remember my past. And those who helped shaped my future.
