A New Year

If it didn’t Bring you Joy,
Just Leave it Behind.
Let’s Ring in the New Year
With Good Things in Mind.
Let Every Bad Memory Go
That Brought Heartache and Pain.
And let’s Turn a New Leaf
With the Smell of New Rain.
Let’s Forget Past Mistakes
Making Amends for This Year.
Sending You These Greetings
To Bring you Hope and Cheer
Happy New Year!

2011 was the wildest roller coaster I have ever been on ---- the birth of my second baby, seeing my amazing daughter grow into a fabulous young girl and almost losing my husband to a medial mistake.  The recovery from that incident has taken over our lives --- financially and at work trying to get back to a normal schedule and back on track with projects, etc; emotionally and mentally trying to reconnect and for me, trying to manage ASD and finding the right combination of medication and therapy; and just simply learning that for us, there is a "before" and "after".  Our lives are not and will not be the same as before the incident (yes, that is what I call it and it works for me).  Its was the most heart wrenching, lonely, and scariest months of my life.  And in the middle of it all, my baby boy joined our family to remind us that life will go on, that happiness and health are in the cards, and that our family will be a-ok.

So adios 2011.  I won't miss you.  2012 -- bring it on!!!!
