All the Best in 2012

It is a new month, in new year and with this brings mixed emotions. I have to say that I am surprised that I have made it through 2012 and am still standing. When I think back to the morning of March 11th and the way my life had no purpose or meaning, it amazes me that I did not give up on life for good.

I can't help but hope that maybe this year will bring positive things to our life. Yet, I am still sad that 2011 is over. I can say that for three months of 2011, I was raising my healthy happy girl. Even though 9 months of that year was horrible, January, February and March make up for it. Isabella existed in 2011, she was alive and healthy. I cannot say the same for 2012 and that makes me sad.

I wonder what this year will bring for me and my family. I hope that there is no more tragedy and pain. No more sadness and grief. Instead I wish for love, strength and hope.

All the best to all in 2012.

I read a blog today from a bereaved mom which said time is irrelevant, no matter how many years may pass our love for our children is timeless.....I wish you and Frank courage, strength,love and peace going forward in each and every year of your lives.

2011 brought our family great happiness and enormous sadness.

Isabella's existence was one of the greatest joys I have ever experienced. No matter the year, I will always remember, love and cherish Isabella. She will always exist in our family as your first child, a first grandchild, my only neice and God daughter and the greatest most loving big cousin ever. Time can not change that!

I hope that 2011 brings you whatever your heart and mind needs. I know that this year won't be easy, but I truly believe that it will be filled with lots of love and hope.
