I hope that you've all had a great holiday, and that you all spent time with family and friends.
For us, it's been a bit of a rough time, and I haven't really felt up to writing. If you've been following the blog for awhile, then you may be aware that I have some health issues, and lately I haven't been doing so well. And, this Christmas didn't really feel like Christmas at all - I spent a couple days in the hospital - and we never got around to buying a tree, or baking cookies - there was no hot cocoa or cheesy Christmas music - and right now, though I am feeling better - I am not at my best.
I don't want to write anything depressing in this space. I started this blog to share things that I enjoy, not to discuss anything upsetting. But, upsetting things do happen - and lately there has been a lot upsetting me. I feel as though every time I get sick I'm robbed of something - and I know that may sound selfish and self-centered, but I am just so fed up and angry. When I was younger and got sick- I could not study dance - which is what I wanted to do more than anything else. And, now that I am ill again- I may not be able to go to grad school. And - I'm scared that the next time I'm sick there is a real possibility that I may not pull through - and that I'll leave behind many things left undone.
I know that I am lucky for all the experiences I've had, all the places I've been able to travel to, and things I've been able to do, and above all I know I am extremely lucky to have married someone that I can laugh with, that I know is always there for me, and that I can share so many things with. It's just that times like these make it hard to be happy.
I will try to continue posting here - it's always great to read all of your comments - and share about the fun things out there. This is something that I enjoy and I don't intend to give it up. It just may be a bit before I can get back into it.
