Happy 2015!

I wrote this yesterday as my Facebook status, thought I’d share on my blog as well:

Today is a day to celebrate and plan. December 31 has particular resonance for me as a time of renewal because it was this day 2 years ago that I was admitted to the hospital with what would turn out to be bacterial meningitis. I survived, but it could have been otherwise. So two years of rebirth later and ready to face another turn of the calendar with humility, gratitude, perspective and commitment. Happy 2015!
