Holidays, Birthdays and The Six Year Reminder

The Holidays are over.
Fun was had by all.
Just ask Riley.
Ashton tested out the new puppy bed.
He says it's ok.
Speaking of the puppy.
We get her in three days.
(January 1st)
Someone got some help opening their Birthday presents.
(My youngest turned 19 .. how did that happen !!!)

All in all it was a
WOW MEOW
kind of Holiday
and Birthday celebration !!!

Today marks my sixth year of going into my coma.
I remember it to a point.
Just bits and pieces.
Which is good I would think.

As I've said before, I was not supposed to make it.
Not through the night.
Not through the next day.

I did.

So there ...

Has my life since then been easy.
No, it has not.

Waking up and relearning to walk
was not for the bravest of the brave.

I did it.

Each day is a gift.
Each moment so precious.

I do sometimes wonder though,
on days like today,
why.

So, I'll continue on this journey.
And, hope someone doesn't figure out
that they made a mistake
six years ago.

Til they do,
I'll be enjoying every moment.

I agree wholeheartedly, each day is so precious and not to be taken for granted. You are a miracle and an inspiration to all those who forget what they should be grateful for :-)

Sending my very best wishes to you and your family for a healthy, happy new year!!!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
