I thought that I would be happier to say goodbye to 2008. This was such a life altering year for us. We began this year so thankful for the experience of living in London. Matt really enjoyed his job and we made a home for ourselves there. Then in January we got the scary test result for Waverly, made plans to bring her back to the US for tests, and then the horrible news that both Waverly & Oliver had MPS III. We had the decide on the stem cell transplant. And then make plans to move back to the US. New state, apartment, job, school, doctors, therapists, etc. 2008 was not kind to us....
But it was a year full of incredible memories. I cherish my time with the kids unlike ever before. I appreciate the small things. I am a very blessed mom to have had a full year with my 2 amazing children.
I am heading into 2009 with a lot of apprehension. I have no idea what the year holds for us, but I know that we are going to take each day as it comes and thank God for another day. Another day with the most incredible kids. Another day to be a mommy. Another day to hope for a miracle.
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year's Eve where ever you are.
