The First TimeMature

It was the first time any patient had ever stood up during the art session and addressed all her fellow patients. Even the counselors didn't quite know what to say to my sister, and that's kind of saying alot, since it seems like counselors can always think of something to say (and I'm not saying that in a mean way). 

I cried almost all the rest of the day, which is also saying alot, considering that at the time, I hardly knew how to cry anymore. I kept reaching over and hugging Idina, and she kept reaching over and hugging me back. Heaven on earth.

The End
