New Year, New Hope, New Joy

January 1, 2008

The new year dawns, brightly.

We have our news. Everything is, as they say, fine. It was always going to be fine, we knew, no matter what, but at least now, for now, we have a ‘fine’ that we can understand, that we can wrap our hearts and minds around a little more easily.

New Years Day, 2008*

We’re happy. We’re so very happy.

Happiest of the new year to you all. And so much love for all of your support throughout this challenging time.

(*This photo was taken today, not far from our lovely new home. We were smiling, all of us.)
