I have always been one for enjoying saying goodbye to one year and welcoming the clean slate of a new one.
Saying goodbye to 2012 was both bitter and difficult yet we entered 2013 hoping for a calm and peaceful year. We had a year just as we hoped with many memories added to life as Team Lloyd that allowed us to smile again.
Saying goodbye to 2013 was difficult as we knew there could be some big changes afoot for 2014. We just didn’t know how big or what those changes would bring. To be at the end of 2014 and looking back through what has been a year full of uncertainty, secrets, nerves, changes, tests, waiting for test results, and several new beginnings, it feels even stranger for a new year to be about to start. Almost like the rest of the world is just catching up with us.
In all honesty Team Lloyd started their new book on November 21st 2014, albeit a little dramatically. Perhaps the story leading up to our new beginning needs to be told first before we can jump right into 2015?
So along with everyone else in the world although we are saying goodbye to another year we will be doing so with a slow wave and a lot of heartfelt thanks. We thank it for showing us what can be accomplished in one short year, what courage can be shown, what courage we have inside us, and for being so kind to our hopes and fears. We live each day knowing Harry Lloyd is watching over us and for that we are forever thankful. Harry Lloyd you live on inside us and we take you onward in our family journey.
As I turn to welcome 2015 I cannot even begin to imagine what this year will hold. I just hope it keeps us safe, healthy and with the people we hold most dear to us.
Happy New Year!
