One year ago, yesterday, began the the most challenging year in my life. My daughter was hospitalized for the third time in nine weeks, but we began to unravel the problems that she was having.
Fast forward to this year. She is off on a school trip to the UK with a group of her classmates. The stresses we face are typical junior year stresses, not ones caused by medical issues. She is happy, completed a successful junior varsity volleyball season, and her academic acheivement is as high as it is ever been. We have had a number of opportunities to share, especially around music, where she loves going to and finding the smaller bands that “just may make it big.”
As I start the second year full year of blogging on this space, I am hopeful that the positive energy she has is will translate into a positive energy on this space. I am really excited about the projects at school and the direction that we are taking.
