I hope my blogpost readers had a great year, and I am grateful to all who have read my posts, commented, and hopefully, inspired a few with some of my cockamanie ideas, stories and adventures through 2017. I also hope you have the time to reflect back on the very same year!
2017 started out with my/our son Ryan's third tongue cancer surgery, but then improved drastically as he healed and improved throughout the winter months. We had a super summer with travels to three weddings where I crisscrossed the country to a tune of 10,000 miles...all by car, along with several stops and visits along those many safely driven miles.
In addition, running some races, refereeing many soccer games, celebrating my/our 30th wedding anniversary and the designing making of many quilts rounded out the year. I am very grateful beyond words...for all the above!
However, there is one "sticking point" over the past year for me; I simply did not read enough books. Sounds trivial, I know, but there is a whole in my heart where I neglected that one love...so I plan to read in earnest in 2018 (our neighborhood book club helped a bit as I read 5/6 books selected). Also, magazines...who has piles they say they would get through in 2017? I am waving my hand because my pile never moved...but I hope that also changes in the new year.
BSoleille! The bright side of reflection for 2017 one and all.
