Ugh, I promised I would be better at my blog and well, I failed miserably. I AM making it one of my New Year's resolutions to do better at it. I mean, it's not hard. I think about writing here all the time, but then I never do. So, once again...I apologize. I bet nobody evens reads my blog anymore because well, there's been nothing to read. Sorry!!! I will do better! Obviously this is a busy time of year for everyone. I feel like I have been TOO busy. Busy is good though. It distracts us from the bad things going on in life. It makes time go by faster (if we want it to or not) and it makes the past more of the past. I really have no idea where 2011 went. If you can tell me, please do. It all seems like a blur. I will be coming up on my 2 year mark of being diagnosed. Really? Sometimes it feels like yesterday, but other times it feels like it never happened and I sit here scratching my head asking, "did that really happen to me?"
So as we come to an end of the year, it's always nice to reflect on the past. The past is the past though. There are a lot of things in our pasts that we wish we could do-over. There are a lot of things in our pasts that we wish never had happened. There are lots of things in our past that have molded us to be who we are today. There are many things in our past that have taught us for our future. So whether you like to think of it as good or bad without our past there really is no future. So try to look back on 2011 and think about what you have learned, what you have encountered and what can make you a better person.
Hopefully all of you are spending time with family and friends today and tomorrow. It really is a magical time of year. I wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas. Be thankful for what you have and bless those that are less fortunate.
Love you all--Erin
