Happy New Year 2006

So the Holidays have come and soon will be gone. This year has been interesting to say the least. It started rough, as we just moved in November and by January were not well set in at all. I felt that I was playing catch up all the time. My dad has been diagnosed with Kidney disease, and has been in denial about it for most of the year. He went into the hospital yesterday for his first dialysis treatment, no more denial dad, this is your life. He's in good spirits, and we hope that this will give him some quality of life back, so pray for us. My brother who is mentally ill has had a really good year, and he seems to have found a good place in his life. Then there is Princess, who has just turned 6, and is growing and learning at an alarming rate. She isn't supposed to be this grown up yet! She now sounds out every word that she sees, most times quite successfully. I went a little crazy with her gifts this year, but however rough this year started, it ended with me financially well off for a change. She has a kind heart, so I don't think one year of excess is going to warp her. I have much to be thankful for at the end of this year, Princess, my dad doing well at least for now, the rest of my family, and my friends who are as close as a family. So tomorrow we will celebrate, some of us with bittersweet memories of the past year, and some of us with a little bit of sorrow, but all of us with the knowledge that we are surrounded by those we love. Petty differences aside, we all accept each other, warts and all. And really, who could ask for more than people who know you at your best and your worst, and STILL like you!! Happy New Year everyone, celebrate safely, and celebrate with those you love. The new year is filled with promise!
