It is hard to believe that January 6th will be 2 years since Ian was admitted to the hospital for his longest stint and what would be our most life changing and scariest visit. When we took Ian to the hospital that night, we had no idea where our journey would take us...we never do but this one hit harder then others. Brian and I were talking the other day and in someways it does not seem like it has been that long, while in other ways it does. The last 2 years have been on borrowed time, any other decision would have meant that Ian would not have come home from the hospital then. The past 2 years has had it highs and lows, given us more memories as well as allowed many of you to join our village and come along for the journey.
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something..Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” ― Neil Gaiman
