TIM: Just under the wire

One minute before midnight, the phone rang. The caller ID read “Tim.”

Instead of handing the phone to Jerry, I risked answering it myself.

“Happy New Year!” I said.

My brother didn’t hang up on hearing my voice. He said, “That’s why I called. Happy New Year.”

It was a healing way to end 2013.

  2. Tim does go back and forth with you in his love/hate relationship with you. Consider this a positive sign, and enjoy it while it lasts.
