One Year

1 01 2018

January 2017, I started blogging regularly. Almost 50 posts during the year, plus 30 in April for the A to Z blogging challenge. Not bad. There were times when I felt I had something to say. Or something to share. Thanks to those of you who read. And commented. And followed.

January 2017, my daughter’s health stabilized, after five hospitalizations in 2016 for a life-threatening health issue. I am hopeful that she is the one out of three long-time survivors under her treatment regime (which twice almost did her in during 2016). We just celebrated one year of being hospital-free. I’m hoping 2018 will bring one year of clean scans.

January 2017, I started surrounding myself with people who were only healthy, supportive, caring, and nurturing. They are all around, easy to find, really.

A year can make a big difference!
