Tears of joy. Never has seeing the new year arrive been so meaningful to me. There were times this last year I was not altogether sure I'd live to see 2014. My donor made that possible.
To my friends who have been harboring similar fears: we made it, baby! And we'll see many, many more.
To all my other friends and also to my family, who have stood by
quietly encouraging, I thank you, I love you, and I hope all of you have
an amazing 2014!!
"Reflect upon your present blessings - of
which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all
men have some." Charles Dickens
