Hoping for Good KarmaThis is definitely not the way we wanted 2008 to begin. My husband's family has just been slammed left and right with health disasters! Here's a quick summary of what they've been enduring since Christmas Eve:
I mean, SERIOUSLY - how can all of that have happened in a little over a week?
Thanks for all the supportive comments - it's getting to the point where we don't want to answer the phone for fear that something has happened to yet another person in the husband's family!
In a probably vain attempt to keep my spirits up in the face of all of this turmoil, I've started a new tradition this year. I have a wall calendar in my office, and each day when I come into work, I write one good thing that happened the day before. It doesn't have to be major - just something that made me smile. So far, I've got "Grandma saw new house and liked it" and "puppy snuggles when I got home." It's a small gesture, but one that I hope will help me concentrate on the good things instead of dwelling on the bad.
