365 days of my life.
Somehow it only only having been 365 days feels inadequate.
Feels like a lifetime ago since I posted this.
Two life times ago.
Maybe most people would look back at this last year and all that we have experienced and be glad that this it's over.
Almost 4 months out of the 12 spent in the hospital. Too many days when I really thought we might lose Mason. Almost 4 months of of the 12 when we were separated from Pierce. The CHARGE diagnosis. Three major surgeries, two minor. 100's of Dr's appointments. Sick more days than well.
I'm actually a bit sad that there is only a few more hours left.
I'm not ready to let it go just yet.
I'm tearing up as I type this.
What a blessed year this has been.
One of the best years of my (almost) 42 years equal only to 2008 and the birth of Pierce
We are whole. We are happy. Our version of healthy.
My life is full and so is my heart.
Thank you life, fate, karma, chance, God, whomever, whatever for this amazing year and all the gifts we have been given.
I'm only too well aware of how differently it could have gone.
I could be sitting here typing about all that we have lost rather than all that we have gained.
I will NEVER, NEVER forget that.
I hope that you to feel blessed for all that 2011 was for you and I hope that you are as excited about 2012 all that can be as I am.
I plan on spending every last second of this year fixing in my heart and mind all that this year was and then I'm gonna kiss my husband and welcome the start of 2012.
Just think of all that might be...
I'm so excited!!!
