To a very happy, healthy and successful new year!
I have been holding off posting for some time because I've just been waiting for 2010 to be over. And now that it's officially done, I feel lighter. The weight of this last year has been oppressive and now I have a new year to look forward to. I know today is Day 1, but it's a beautiful thing. I'm listening to "Auld Lang Syne" and thinking of my wonderful friends and family who have really supported us over the last 12 months, and my eyes tear remembering the love that has held us up. And I think about my husband and I'm sure he saved my life. With everything we've been through, I know I still have things to be grateful for.
Now that we both have departure dates for our flights, I can't help but feel excitement. We are starting over and while it's tough, it's a future we're both looking forward to. I don't know what our lives will look like, but I aim to be more open, more patient, more loving, and to take each opportunity as they come to me and seek out the pleasures and joys in life that are there if you look for them.
Happy new year to all of you. I wish you all the wonderful things I wish for myself.
