so long 2009

you started out with a bang..my daughter in a bed all hooked up to wires, IV's and anything else that could be attached, as I cried when you rang in.. it seemed as if everyone was celebrating..everyone except us that were trapped in our hospital rooms watching our children fight for their lives.. I had a healthy daughter before you so rudely interrupted, and then a terminally ill daughter and then a buried daughter.. I am glad to see you gone.. I am praying I never experience the pain you brought with you as you stormed in.. you flew by in some ways and in others were quite possibly the longest most torturous year ever.. So I bid you farewell.. so glad to see you go..don't let the hypothetical door hit you on your way out..

there is a facebook app for my year in status.. this was mine..a very appropriate last sentence..
there was another for my year in photo's and this is what mine was.. I thought it was appropriate..


I am not so naive to assume 2010 will be perfect, but I honestly pray its no worse or even equally as bad as 2009 has been.. Happy New years to our caring and loving friends (new and old) and family..you all made 2009 a little more tolerable..

I need to figure out how to use those features of fb. I love them both.

Praying for you that this coming year is better than the last one was. Baby Ella, as well as your whole family, is in my thoughts and prayers. Here's to a better year for all of us.

Yeah, 2010 won't be perfect but I'm hoping for all of us that there is some light this year.

I agree, I'm looking forward to a healthier, happier 2010. We started the year out sick, then my 3 year old was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes thanks to the flu she caught over the new year. Then losing Madison...I am not sad to say goodbye to this year. May this year bring much happiness to us all.

I pray that 2010 is so much better than 2009.

I can't imagine enduring that year the way you have.
