|Moments before surgery.... 12/31/2009|
Today I remember and am so grateful. I see my children and am so grateful. I lay in bed while my husband works at his desk and I listen to his voice, the same voice that gave me comfort throughout those very dark years, and I am grateful. I live! My faith, the faith of my family. It all makes me grateful! I look at life differently than before I got sick. I appreciate more, I try to be more understanding, I try to sympathize and empathize with each and every person I meet. And, my family, well, there are no words. They never lost hope and I am here because of that hope.

Today I celebrate Life!!! Every day since that dreadful day in 2010 when I was wheeled into that operating room, on New Years, our celebration includes more than the new year, it includes life! I celebrate being able to watch my children grow and every night I celebrate crawling into my husband's arms. New Years is a new start for everyone, we wipe the slate clean and then start again, it is a beautiful metaphor of the metamorphs we can all experience each year, but for me, and for my family, there is an added bit of joy.
Our family sends everyone the Best of New Year's Wishes!!! We hope you find joy, peace and prosperity in the coming year....oh, and a little time for Fiber too!!!
Happy New Year!!!
Serenity in Fiber throughout the New Year!!!
