On the other hand, we lost our beloved Charlotte and my health has been a bit more of a struggle than some years. There have been quite a few losses in the CF community as well, all of which are difficult.
Each day, each month, and each year has its trials, tribulations and triumphs. This is a given: no day, month or year is going to be free of stress, some heartache or conflict. That's just life. How can you compare one year to the next? Each one is unique and will have its share of joy and pain. As long as we're alive that's the price we pay, so best to enjoy every moment while we have it.
