It is Christmas Eve, we are at my mom’s house and it is 5 years since Woutertjie was diagnosed. Every year Wouter and I look at each other in the days and weeks running up to Christmas and can only be amazed at how far we’ve come. God has been gracious and kind to us and for that we are eternally grateful.
This year Boeta seems a lot more at ease with us talking about “the time when he was ill”. I think he is starting to realise that talking about it won’t make it come back.
Carien only cares about going to big school next year. We already bought her school shoes (white sneakers) and she has been wearing them everywhere. She is definitely ready for school.
And we are ready to celebrate Christmas and the birth of Christ. May you have a blessed 2014!
