i’ve been thinking back to the events of the last year, most of it was a blur (in and out of hospitals, doctor’s offices. opening up letters for follow ups, summaries and diagnoses) but it was also filled with alot of gratitude and happiness.
even though we received Jovie’s Rett Syndrome diagnosis in June, i feel like i grieved more in 2011 when we first read about the syndrome and realised how much it matched up to us. being prepared, really pushed me faster to the place of acceptance and moving forward. and i’m grateful for that.
falling pregnant in october was truly a blessing. i also feel like it’s our own way of moving forward with living our lives and giving thanks to all that we have. i certainly am aware of how tough life is with the RS diagnosis, but i don’t think that should stop us from living a full and happy life. it would be a tragedy if we all gave up on happiness because life wasn’t ‘perfect’ all of a sudden. who wants to be perfect anyway?
if i’ve learnt anything in the last 12 months, it’s to never give up on anything that means something to you. whether it’s family. friends. career. hobbies. it/they will always enrich your lives, if you make the effort.
so here’s to a blurry but interesting 2012, and to an even more interesting 2013!
