When I sat down to write my "end of year" post all I could think of was WOW. Where the heck do I start. There have been so many incredible ups and downs. Getting pregnant with twins again. Losing another baby. Almost losing this one. So much progress for the girls. Spring, Summer, Fall.
So much of it I never saw coming. Right now, in the midst of something as scary as cancer, it's hard to remember all the good that happened. It's hard to see much beyond a day or so. Through most of the negative things that have happened to us we have always said "our family is healthy and that's all that matter". So we deal with a lot of crap. So our kids have issues. We have a healthy, intact family. So what do you say when that isn't the case? I'm not really sure.
I guess the theme that prevails through the ups, the downs and the in betweens is family. Every moment this past year has been filled up with the love, support and help of our family. I guess that's really and truly what matters most.
So this new year I don't have much in the way of resolution. Obviously a healthy birth for my son and a healthy new life for my Dad are topping the list. But when you are surrounded every single day by a family who loves you unconditionally a few extra pounds or a chocolate addiction hardly seem relevant.
I wish each of you a healthy, happy, and family filled new year!
