[color=red] Happy New Year :?: [/color]

So how was it for you??

We have just got back from spending christmas with my family - I am glad to say it was better than I thought. My family were their usual kind and loving selves and I think they understood that sometimes I smiled and sometimes I cried!

New year ripped my heart out as I knew it would. I have spent too many New years praying that this year will be the one - so I knew having to face another would be upsetting, I knew this one would be worse though, knowing that there is no more treatment planned and that all hope for a baby is now gone was too depressing for words.

But still this is a new year and so I hope there will be a new kind of hope.
DH and I have made a different wish list this year - we have made promises to one another and made new goals but this time at least we know these are achievable and ARE within the realms of possibilty!

There is still so much to conquer (battling this depression and getting back to work wpould be a start!) and this road is so very long but at least today I have a "new start" kind of feeling and I hope that it lasts!

I have been thinking of you all and wondering how the holidays were for you. I lit my candle for you at mass on Christmas eve, I said a prayer looking at the crib and wished us all HOPE.

I look forward to seeing you all back on the board. I love the updated site - its so much more friendly!

Hi Lorraine

Happy new year to you too all be it 17 days late , I do hope this will be a happy one for you , its sounds as though you have both had a good sort out and set goals which is great news and when you start achieving them Im sure your life will take a turn for the better , I am someone that always has goals and the last 3 years Yes I wished for that year to be my year and the next then the next and I suppose Im hopeing to have my decision made reguarding giving up by the end of this year. I do so admire you and I know that it wont be easy for you or any one in this posision to deal with it but making the decision and moving on is a great achievement in itself so a big pat on the back so far .

Thinking of you
