Goodbye 2014, you were bittersweet. You gave me the unmeasurable high of Isobel being born, bringing with her more sunshine and love than possibly imaginable and then the crushing low of my cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment. There have been tears and smiles, fun and trauma, exhaustion and kindness, so much kindness. It’s been emotional.
Life, this wasn't how I’d planned it but it’s beautiful. I have been on the reciprocating end of so much kindness, thoughtfulness and love. Friends, family and even strangers to me have gone to extreme lengths to support us. When I think back on the year’s events, I’m humbled and extremely grateful. I’m currently half way through my radiotherapy treatment and approaching the lull in treatment where we wait. Wait to see if it’s gone.
Whilst waiting, I plan to take the beauty from last year into 2015 and draw all the positives out of my diagnosis. I will most certainly cherish all the little moments in life that little bit more and hug my girls that little bit tighter. Tell my loved ones I love them, bake, travel and make some exciting memories. I’d especially like to support others the way I have been supported.
Thank you everyone - I’m a lucky duck. Happy New Year!
