It’s the last day of the year. Soon, I’ll be going out for the countdown party and fireworks. Where has the year gone? There was so much I wanted to do but didn’t manage to accomplish. Sounds familiar, right? All things considered, I’m still alive, so that’s something to be grateful for. My husband is still with me, so I am more fortunate than some other women. A young woman I met earlier this year was not so fortunate; she had Stage 4 breast cancer, was told she was terminal, and her husband was divorcing her, leaving her to fend for herself. Some close relatives and friends of mine were also abandoned by their husbands, leaving them to look after their children themselves, with no financial support.
When you think about it, those who have someone to love them and care for them are truly blessed, even though they may not seem to have much by way of material things. I don’t know how I could have survived the darkest hours of cancer had my dear husband not been there for me every step of the way. He’s the reason I live today.
My wish for the new year is that my hubby will be blessed from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet. May every desire of his heart be granted to him, and may joy overflow in him. When the person you love is blessed, you will enjoy the spillover too.
May you all have more than enough love to carry you through 2011!
