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.)

    HBM, I’m so glad for you. Because even if you were prepared and would have been great at it, a challenge is still a challenge, and sometimes you can just do without extra challenges, you know? congrats, and it must feel great just to KNOW.

    Your page takes so frustratingly long to load on my computer, but at least the title of the post loads quickly, and from that I knew that all was well. Such wonderful news.

    As for the picture, well, it’s the new background on my computer. Hope you don’t mind.
