December 31, 2012.......last few hours of the year. I don't do resolutions......but many of you will recall, I do vision boards. When the new one is done, I will post a picture of it.
2012......for me has been a year of tests, of struggles, a year of life staring me in the face and daring me to practice what I teach. It started with a call from my lung doc in December of 2011, it went into a
speeding slide with the introduction of a hematologist/oncologist in January 2012.......a diagnosis of an immune system that had failed miserably and the recommendation of open-ended infusion treatments. And all the doctor visits, and side-effects and meds in between.
But, I met some of the strongest, kindest people in the world in those big green chairs.....and sadly said goodbye to some of them. I have truly learned that all we have is today.......
I have learned that you can do "all the right things" and still have serious health issues.
I have said goodbye to three of my most precious furry friends who had been with me for years, and also said goodbye to several human friends. I have learned that naps are one of my most valuable resources and that my husband Rick is strong and brave.
I have learned that music and art give me peace, that teaching yoga gives me more, than it gives my students. Most of all, I have learned that I am loved......and that these four words "this too shall pass" are true.
I don't think much about the future anymore, I just pray that every day .......we all receive our portion of grace......Happy New Year.
