It's the finale of Still Life 365- I'm hoping it continues on, it has been a beautiful and touching year. It has been a wonderful healing space for grieving parents, and I am so grateful to Angie for putting it together, and all the people who participated. The last post is a great recap: http://stilllife365.blogspot.com/2010/12/still-life-365-year-end-wrap-up.html
This year I personally leave behind me a trail of empty pill bottles, surgical knives, a lot of pain medication, stitches, and loads of negative pregnancy tests.
Still, 2010 wasn't as bad as 2009- I mean, I had 2 miscarriages in 2009 alone. It just wasn't a very good year.
But 2010 wasn't the best either. Seriously, 3 surgeries in 3 months? I survived, but it was hard at times. I am glad I had them done, but I don't remember much of those first three months of the year.
Still, I didn't have another miscarriage. And for that, I am thankful. And hey, I even got my first period on my own since probably 2005. That was really unexpected, and I am still beaming that my body actually did something right. We have a roof over our heads, plenty of food, animals I love to death... it ain't all bad.
I'm hoping 2011 is ever better though. A girl can dream, right?
Here's to hoping we all have a great 2011. Best wishes everyone~
