good-bye to you

2010 will be better. 2010 will be the year that I beat IF. 2010 will be the year that we beat IF. I don't know this for sure, but I strongly believe it. I want to believe it. Why do I feel this? Because we are stronger than IF. We are more resilient. We don't give up and we don't lie down and take it. We keep fighting and we keep believing. We have to.

This year, the words, "Happy New Year" are taking on a whole new meaning for me. The new year will be happy. It will be filled with wonderful family, friends, and what I hope will be a tiny new addition before the year ends. It will be a year of redemption for me--a year of getting my life back after I let IF take it away from me.

That's my resolve for 2010, and I hope I can stick to it. More importantly, I want to wish all of YOU a happy new year. I brag a lot about how wonderful my husband has been in all of this, but you all are my second biggest support group. A lot of you received your miracle in 2009, but for the rest of you, I wish nothing but the best in 2010. May we all receive our miracles. We have waited long enough and we deserve it.

So, good-bye to you, 2009. May 2010 be a year filled with new memories and miracles.

Yay to 2010. It will be better!

A said...

Indeed, 2010 WILL BE HAPPY!! Even numbered years are better anyway, right? ;-) (Plus, if we have kids this year, think of how easy it will be to know how old they are?! Says the girl born in 1980 who knows how easy it is!!)

Ditto to what A said! Lol.

We can stick to it!

Erin said...

I am so very excited for 2010! I'm right with you in believing that this has to be our year!

Your attitude and approach is contagious, Katie. I hope you realize just what a source of hope, inspritation and wisdom you are for all us.

Elizabeth said...

Thanks so much Katie. You have been such a wonderful friend this year, and I hope we can both celebrate in 2010.

I do have to say though that we might have to "lay down and take it" in 2010, ya know? Sorry I couldn't resist added a tiny bit of humor into this last craptastic day of 2009!

Hope you have a wonderful evening and thanks again!

Astrid said...

yes, goodbye 2009. and good riddance! I, like A, was born in 1980 and i love how easy it is to figure out what my age is or was in any year in the past or future. It's brilliant. Happy new year!!

Katie said...

Amen, sister! :-)

Seriously, very well said.

I hope 2010 brings you great things!

JC said...
