This is the last day of the year. My brother sent me a cake that has a rear view mirror with 2011 in the corner. I am happy to see the year go. It has been filled with and consumed by cancer and its treatment. It has been a year of appointments and surgeries. I have had to build my life around my health. I had to learn to say “no” to projects, events, meetings, to things I wanted to do and some I didn’t. I had to miss things with my children. I am glad to say goodbye to 2011.
It’s a little scary letting go and moving on even if it’s towards a better future. I think this blog will be about how I shape this new life and the choices I make. For now I have stopped journaling on my caringbridge site and turned to this new one. We’ll see how it goes!
