2009 – What will you make of it?

January 5, 2009

On December 31st I posted the last blog of the year and then headed out to celebrate the close of 2008 with my honey and two of my cousins. We partied the night away in a downtown night club and rang in the new year with hugs, kisses and “I love you’s”. I have been blessed with a very large and close family. Unfortunately, by 1:30 A.M. on January 1st, 2009, I was listening to news from my mom that a family member had passed away earlier in the evening. The first day of the new year was surreal, as my family and I struggled to wrap our brains around the fact that one of us was gone. I was in awe of the family and friends who gathered to support my Aunt and Uncle as they begin to face the painful loss of their son and slowly work towards the future. I know that my cousin will never be forgotten because we will always carry his loving memory with us. I feel that he has left us all with a reminder that we should never take one another for granted and that we should make the most of the life and love we’ve got. xoxo Denise
