We can all definitely say it has been a hard year, but we can also make the choice to allow 2014 to be a better year. My ex walked out on me for another woman on February 12, 2013 and 4 months later my mom called me to tell me she had breast cancer. When my mom was finding out the stage of her cancer we made a bet. She bet it was stage 2 and I said stage 1....I WON!!! She had her last chemo infusion 2 weeks ago and bouncing back with an 85% chance that it will not come back. With that being said, my mom called me one night and said New Year's at midnight she want she and I to be on the phone together and FLUSH THE TOILET...flush 2013 DOWN!!! A friend of mine proposed that she and I both write down on toilet paper what we are flushing away. So we are doing it! I wanted to share this with all of you in hopes that you would do the same thing. Hugs to you all and that 2014 is a great year for all of you!

What a GREAT idea!
I'm gonna flush!
Lord, with Your help I will focus on each small step of the climb, instead of the mountain that stands before me.

I may need to flush twice to clear the bowl!

What a great idea, if my 16yo dd hadn't already said she wants to burn some stuff (sheets from my bed, papers and some other things) that might be a player. We are going to do a ceremony and throw things in the fire!

Midnight local or midnight a specific time zone? I'm in!
Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

I'm also joining in on this one. As I'm in the UK, I will definitely be doing this at a different time than you all.
