Yep, still here. Another year has come and gone since January 3rd 2009 when I posted a photo of my battered old daybook turned to January 3rd 2010 with the words “STILL HERE!” written on it, as part of a weekly Photo Challenge – the theme that week was Hope. I had finished a second stint of chemo a few months previously and this felt like a very bold thing to do – to hope I’d still be here on the same day a year hence.
I have continued the “tradition of hope” since then and have posted a similar photo on this date each year. Here’s hoping (as always!) that I will still be here January 3rd 2024, and will see this page in my book… and then post my hopeful wish for 2025. ❤️
