Happy New Year

As 2008 closes, I wish each of you a happy and healthy new year. No one knws why some things happen. But many of those "some things" are really good things. I hope only those for you.

My heart is heavy, remembering last New Year's Eve, as I quickly wished farewell to a horrible year of breast cancer and welcomed a new year full of its own challenges but ending pretty good for wear. I don't know how I got here, with genuine fright that this New Year's Eve would be the last. Somwhere in the past year everything changed and I am still trying to figure it all out.

Silly, really, when today is just an arbitrary day. But 2009 is my all-or-nothing year.

Keep your head up and keep fighting, Sally! You just never know, this could be your year! You have more people rooting for you than you will ever know.

Happy New Year! Don't fret, you still have some fighting left to do and I believe that with all of the prayers coming your way, that you will succeed.
Love,
Adrienne and Nolan

I like that you are honest. That means that you are brave. Since you are brave that must mean that you are courageous. Courageous means that you are full of heart. Since you are full of heart, you make a difference in this world. Thanks for making a difference, Sally. I will endeavour to do the same this new year.
