merry christmas!

I cannot believe that the year is coming to an end, and James and I have a world of possibilities ahead for a future together. We experience the world through a lens of gratitude. We are always acutely aware of the alternative. We are not without our own difficulties, but James and I have the advantage of perspective. We can always re-frame our situation and circumstance. James is alive. We are together. There is nothing else that compares or holds the same value. Every day is a good day.

It has been a hard month in our Cystic Fibrosis and Transplant families. James and I are thinking about all of our dears friends. We know the ache of those awaiting transplant, away from loved ones, and without a certain future. We feel for those recovering from transplant, healing on all different levels, and facing the realities of post-transplant complications. We are deeply saddened by the passing of some exceptional individuals. We know that the absence of loved ones becomes increasingly palpable during the holidays. We remember the anniversaries of those lost in past years. We fight to reconcile our grief with the spirit of the season.

We are sending our love to each and every one of you. 

We wish you a joyful holiday season. 

We hope that you are surrounded by the comfort and warmth of your family and friends. 

love. love. love.

(James has been unable to complete his 6 months post-transplant assessment. We will update again in January. James continues to heal).
