Please join me in a toast of sparking apple juice to welcome the coming new year.
The little cherub is blowing you wishes for a healthy, happy 2010.
Back in 1986 when I lost my hearing, I lost the ability to live my life as the
"people" person I was living in the hearing world for 39 years.
Ten years ago I received the miracle of the cochlear implant
which gave me my life back so I could hear beautifully one on one.
Three months ago I started a blog.
I have been inspired by new friends, shared the joys and heartaches some of you are
going through and celebrated some of the really wonderful events in your lives.
I feel I have been given such a precious gift of being able to make new friends from
all over the world.
Thank each of you for giving me what I had missed most, friends who I can hear every word
through the pages of your blogs, your parties and home tours.
I have been blessed abundantly.
God Bless each of you and your families.
Happy New Year!
