As we are saying goodbye to another year I want to reflect on 2013 for a while. This year for me has been a year of finding myself again, almost like waking up from a very deep sleep. The last year has seen me and my family hit rock bottom as we tried to come to terms with my strokes, depression, mood swings. It has been a very trying year for all of us.
For the children it has been a very different journey for them as they have seen their mum deteriorate right in front of their eyes. Yet through their inner strength have managed to cope and deal with all that life has thrown at them.
I want to make a special mention to Mr Savvy who this year has been our rock. For him it has been such a lonely year as family and friends have deserted him in his time of need. Many a time I am sure that he just needs a few words of assurance that he will get through the latest obstacle or over the next hurdle. Yet no one seems to care which is really upsetting. He has such a large burden on his shoulders and NEVER moans about this mammoth task he has to bear.
I am not making any New Year resolutions as quite frankly whatever I plan never works out. All I will say that we will continue to fight for Zak’s schooling and get him the right support he will need. I honestly don’t know what 2014 has in store for us. I do know that we will continue our journey and fight our battles as a family.
I just want to say thank you for sharing my journey and hope that 2014 is a great year for you all.
So Happy New Year and to hoping that 2014 is a good year and a fresh start.
I am starting 2014 by going to hospital to have a scan and tests to see if my heart operation in the summer has worked.
