My husband and I have been through the most. The accident and my illness almost ripped us apart completely this past year. These last few months we have been striving to rebuild our relationship. It has been hard but I think it is one of those situations where we are finally dealing with the issues that have always been between us like work and family. We are dating more and talking more. Today we played hooky and had a great time. I got me some Longhorn boots!
So I decided each year I will make a mini-bucket list. First thing on my bucket list is that I got a wonderful new opportunity and I'm starting it next week. I will be working with one of our local hospitals, March of Dimes, and other local community resources to start an outreach and support program for families with pre-mature infants. This does mean graduate school might wait a little longer but it is a wonderful chance to do make a difference. I will be overseeing the marketing and I'm having fun with it already. This was a real surprise opportunity for me but I'm so happy to have it, especially after what friends and family have been through this year.
