When I lived in England in the early 1990s, the queen gave a speech describing one of those years as an "annus horribilis"" - Latin for horrible year.
Whilst I am thankful for the fact that I am alive, in relatively good health and surrounded by family and friends, 2007 has been a particularly trying year for me.
It has tested my faith in God, but thankfully I am stronger for it. On April 14 after waiting for so long to have a child we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl whom we named Jade. But in His infinite wisdom, God allowed her to spend only two days, eight hours and ten minutes on this earth before he took her back home.
