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.
