I don’t drop by my Facebook too often (I lay the blame – as everyone else – on being too preoccupied) but this morning a memory popped up that I can’t resist sharing. It’s taken 2 years ago to the day, when Cecile was still part of the family. It was a time of great change and upheaval and if I think about it, the picture was taken in an act of defiance. To the outside world, but more so to myself. I am ok. We are fine. We will survive. Less than three weeks later I found myself in an ICU, fighting septicemia and organ failure. It is a time in my life I still have to come to terms with and perhaps it hasn’t received the closure it deserves. But today, as the sun shines and I am working on a new exciting project, and my kids making progresses in life which I am tremendously proud of, I can’t help but counting my blessings.
