Happy new year to everyone who takes the time to read and comment on my blog , here is a look back on a year i wish to forget ((except for some bits of it )) ,
the year started out with my son drew in hospital fighting for his life with a staph infection that he picked up in the local river , after some weeks of recovery things started to go back to normal only to have the same son bashed by a 40 year old leaving drew with some mental disabilities .
We cruised through to the middle of the year and everyone in my house became ill with swine flu and as most of you know i was the one who came out the worst with pneumonia and a lung operation .
We had some milestones during the year my eldest son chris was promoted to manager of kmart and he also found himself the most beautiful girlfriend who we all adore .
We sadly lost our fury friend Misty due to a terrible cancer and then we welcomed a new fury member to the family Bella the border collie ...Mason started to talk this year after some months of speech therapy that really took him no where .
Then hubby and i celebrated 8 years of marriage together and a beautiful weekend away to renew our vowes on sydney harbour ...We were thinking this would be the perfect ending to a somewhat shit year of ups and downs ..
But it wasn't going to be this way at all on dec 19 i got the call that all parents dread ...my hubbys son Joshua was in a head on collision with a truck on QLD notorious Bruce highway south of Rockhampton , sadly Joshua passed away in the accident he was only 19 years old and just became a daddy .
So there is my year in review its been a shocking one , who knows why our family have been struck with such horrible happenings but one can only hope for a brighter year ahead .
RIP Joshua John Brown
