New way to count the years

>>  Wednesday, January 01, 2020

In the past I have spoken about counting years down by Remembrance parades or by the Maze

But so much more now I am finding that I'm counting it in years I didn't think we'd have.

This is our second Christmas and New Year since Cog narrowly avoided death

I still haven't made it out of the amazing relief, gratitude and 'OMG' phase of this and I'm not sure I ever will.  Every interaction since has felt like a blessing.  She's still having a hard struggle with Post Sepsis Syndrome and all the other daemons she was already carrying

But she's still the trooper she ever was, with a strength and bravery that leaves me in awe.

So here we are 617 days since I thought we'd lost her.  2 birthdays, 2 Christmases, 2 New Years, 1 lovely holiday...many tears, trials and tribulations.

It's changed me as a person. I am more grateful for days spent with her.  I try harder to help people that need support in times of difficulty to try to pay back the loving care so many gave to me at that time and immediately afterwards. 

Happy New Year and I hope we are all here feeling as grateful this time next year.
