So much has happened this year. So much that I cannot publicly write about and so much that I can. I feel like I have helped some friends and some family out of some tight jams. Perhaps I let some down, too. I feel like those friends and family have kept me sane for the moment. I have tried so hard to take care of myself in order to take care of my wonderful son. He keeps me going, and keeps me young, as does my wonderful husband. I have much to be thankful for, no matter what is going on. I want so much to feel like writing as much as I felt like writing years ago. It hasn’t been easy, though. I have thought about what I would write, thought about how to word things, gone over what I have said to people a million times. I guess nothing in this life is really easy. I type, I delete. I type again. Where will I be a year from now? I have no idea, but my website just renewed and I am determined to use it. I want so much to start a new writing project that I would love to spend so much time on. I guess all writers go through a rut of not knowing what to write. Maybe life gets the best of us. Life makes us live and we just don’t stop to write for a while, but of course, our love for the written word always brings us back. Maybe this is because writing has truly been our oldest friend. I have been writing since I was a preteen, perhaps how old my son is now. I knew then, so long ago what I wanted to do with my life, but I had no idea how it would really turn out. I just knew that I wanted to write and that thought alone has carried me through my professional life and sometimes my personal life as well. As I type this, I realize that so much has happened this year where I was just living my life and I’d love to share at least the good times with my followers, if I still have any out there waiting for me. Who knows, perhaps I will get some new followers, so I will post some pictures of the past year and perhaps that will get some people interested in this little thing we call life. There is so much I want to say and soon I will know what to say and when, I hope, but for now, I leave you with pictures.
