Happy New Year

Recession, destabilization, doom, gloom, blah, blah, blah…



I, for one, am looking forward to 2009, no matter how grim the outlook.  2008 was basically the hardest year of my life and I am thrilled to be kissing it goodbye tonight.  I know it might not look like a great year up ahead, but I’ve got high hopes that it will at least be no worse than 2008, and possibly a lot better.



So to anyone who has had a similarly trying year – and to all who have supported me through my dark times – I wish you a very happy, healthy New Year, full of brighter days.


Whatever comes our way in 2009, here’s something to keep in mind, from a sign that I see every day in the radiation clinic:







Bring on the New Year!

    Happy New Year, Leanne!

    Your spirit is strong and reaches out to those of us who read your blog. I feel confident in saying those who are privileged to know you in “real” life count their blessings every day.

    Here! Here! Happy New Year and Cheers to brighter 2009. Thank you for the candid and humorous sharing of your story. I too am on this Breast Cancer roller coaster ride (would someone please stop the ride :o). Your blog has truly touched my heart – I only wish I found it sooner. Thank you again for sharing. May 2009 bring you and your family health, strength, laughter and happiness.

    All the best for 2009. Seeing your bald head on this blog only reminds of how many times you reminded me mine was shaped like a cinder block.

    Happy New Year!
