It was a GOOD year

Today was a pretty busy day. Appointments in Bakersfield took up the entire day. At one point while I was sitting in yet another waiting room (what IS it about MD's not having any decent magazines in their waiting rooms? Is that part of the oath they take??), I started thinking. (which usually leads to a blog idea). Today just happened to be my 47th birthday. Surprisingly I had no fleeting feelings of being "old" and no fears of getting older. MS showed me what real fear is, and it has nothing to do with getting older.

So, as I sat there in the waiting room I started thinking about everything that has happened over the last year. WHAT A YEAR! In spite if it all, I have to say it WAS a good year. True MS kicked my ass. BIG TIME. However, it was the unending support of my husband, family, friends and fellow bloggers that helped me get back up every single time that MS whomped on me. I may have been battered and bloody, but it was everyone's support that got me back on my feet. (Even if it meant those feet landed on the foot rest of a wheelchair and getting up was the LAST thing I wanted to do). With love and support like that....the year couldn't have been anything but good.

Happy Birthday !!!

( I know what you mean. I've had several bad years and my thought was ... damn that was hard but I survived ... I like life just a bit too much and those good days are so so nice )
