The year is coming to an end. I can’t believe how quickly it has come and gone. For me I’m glad to see it end. It was not a very positive year for my family.
January I had surgery on my hand from a fall due too a epilepsy seizure I had. I went through months of therapy to try to fix it and it’s just not fixable. 2 of my fingers are permanently bent and will never be straight again. I got a second opinion from another surgeon and he said I have to live with what I have. I was so very upset. I felt like my first surgeon should have done so much more and not waited so long.
In June my son had a motorcycle accident and almost lost his life and spent a little over a month in Burn ICU. Now he has to have surgeries every 4-6 weeks on the burn sites until they feel they are minimizing.
Then in August my daughter moved back to San Diego which broke my heart. It’s difficult to see your children move away from you, when you have taken care of them your entire life. I miss her so much more every time she walks out that door!
Then on December 14th, 4 days after my birthday my last living grandparent past away. He was my grandfather on my mother’s side. He lived a very long life of 92 years. He was war veteran and was so ready to go to be with my wonderful grandmother.
So yes, I’m ready for this year to end. I’m exhausted from the sadness that this year brought to me. But I held it together for everyone else like a mother should. I’m looking forward to 2019 and what it will bring.
I don’t make resolutions because I feel that these are things you should be doing all the time anyways….you should be working out, you should be dieting, you should go on vacation, you should spend more time with the family. You should not be doing these things just because it’s the New Year. Do them all year round.
So have an awesome 2019 I will be right here with you. Hopefully we will have the BEST NEW YEAR EVER! Cheers 🥂!
