KIOS: Here on our final Friday of the year, let’s share a little bit about the year that was 2013
Okay, so I’m trying to hang in there until the end with this Blog-a-thon. Only one more week to go. I think I would have been far too apathetic to write had this not been going on and it may be one of the most important periods in my life to be writing –
So herewith, a prompted review of 2013:
1. What will you remember about 2013?
Struggle. Struggle, loss and pain. Two happy moments in between – My wedding day on February 7, 2013 with a very sick bride (she caught a severe cold from me – I didn’t think she was going to be able to make it to the JP’s house). And my wife’s birthday – July 12th – which we spent in Rockport. After three months of pure hell, I didn’t think she’d even be able to do it, but she did and it is a pure, and happy memory.
2. What are you ready to leave behind?
I only wish it were that simple. The hardest part of our road is still in front of us.
3. What’s something you learned in 2013?
That I do have it within me to be a caregiver (I was scared to death that I was going to fail in this critical role)
To always stay centered in love as a source of strength and compassion.
That we are not alone.
4. What would you like to celebrate about this past year?
That we survived and that it made us stronger. And the power of family and friends to provide love and support.
I think that’s all I can really muster at this point.
