good bye 2011 and good ridance

Saturday, December 31, 2011

hello 2012 i welcome you with open arms.

people who know me will know why i can´t wait to get rid of 2011 and how much i hope and prey that 2012 will be a better,less traumatic year for me.a short resume of the main things that happened in 2011

april 1st - zakariya was in hospital with concussion from an aprils fools prank.

end of april - my cousin died(he was only 4 years older than me and died from a lung infection would you believe)

beginning may - my aunty died she lost her will to live after her son died.

beginning june - got another lung embolie despite blood thinners.also diagnosed as having antiphosphatelipid antibody syndrom.

end of july- got paralise in left arm

1st august - leftside of face got paralised and started having problems with left leg.

middle september - went into hospital

end september & beginning of october - had two ops for anurysmas

24th november - we nearly lost ayman.

so as you can see i have enough to be thankful that 2011 is over.having said that it wasn´t all bad.

in the january my trousers literally fell down on me when i was out,lucky it happened by my front door and i don´t think apart from the kids that any one saw.

at the end of august i finally reached one-der-land but alas it didn´t last long (but i am determined to get back there again especially now i know it can be done.

in the whole year i lost 15lbs which though not as much as i intended and hoped it is still a great success concidering all the stress i had this last year.

my brother spoke to me for the first time since 1998(he stopped talking to me when i became muslim.

so looking back it could have been worse.

time to stop looking back now and look forward my blog for goals etc for 2012 will post tomorrow when i hopefully would have decided if i am making any or not,lol.

    I am always delighted when a new year comes around. The past is what it is ... we can't ever change that ... However, we can look forward to a future that is filled with possibilities! There will be dark days ... there will be sad days but that is part of Life. I am wishing you the very best year of your life for 2012! emoticon

    I'm glad you are such a strong and positive lady. Many would have gone under with stress upon stress so it shows what good stuff you are made from. I know you will reflect the glory back to God and that will be a sourse of your strength. I'm sure you will get through the trials of 2012...and if you shout out we'll hear and support you.
    love, hugs and big bright sparks

    It sounds like you've had a lot of loss and health problems this year. That can be very difficult. I was on blood thinner for years. That in itself is a health problem. It's a dangerous medication... coumadin right?

    You did lose 15 pounds and that is amazing. You also led the FitGirls and you are a GREAT leader. Don't forget that as an accomplishment. Don't forget all the support you gave people.

    2012 will be great for you and I am glad your Brother is talking to you again.
