Dee: Hello, although I’m not sure anyone actually took notice (I mean I have no clue if anyone reads this blog or not) however, I had taken a long break from blogging. You see, 2016 was a particularly difficult year for me. I lost both of my parents in a few months time. My dad passed in the spring and my mom more recently. She had a massive stroke on election day and then passed the following day. The world became very unkind and I retreated to grieve and save myself. I thought I was doing pretty well until my mom’s birthday came around. Her birthday just happened to be on inauguration day. Again, the world was a very unkind place that day in particular as I grieved her first birthday without her. So I’ve remained in seclusion from blogging.
By all accounts 2017 looks to be a very promising year for my family. We adopted a beautiful six year-old westie named Finn who has become a particularly bright spot in my life. My sons are grown and there are weddings to look forward to in the near future. My work continues to delight me and there are always adventures, friends, crafting and knitting to be had. I seem to have emerged from the fog and I am rejoining society once again. My loving family and great friends are a huge part of my recovery. Thank you to all
So look forward to seeing some fun and happiness return to this page in the near future.
Make America kind again.
