The Year Ahead

Well here we are at the end of our year without T.V.  What a year it has been.  I am so grateful for this challenge and all that I have learned.  I am grateful for the time I found to do many new things.  I only wish that we could have truly hung on for the whole time.
I have just returned home for my father's funeral.  What a hard thing to go through.  I am thankful again for the time we had together in October. What a blessing it was.  As I helped to go through his house and belongings I was overwhelmed with the thought that these things were the accumulation of his life.  I wondered what would be left at the end of my journey on this earth.  Then I thought of my Dad's children, grandchildren, brothers, sister, nieces and nephews and friends.  And realized that that is where his true love and life was.  That is where he found his greatest happiness and those relationships are what will last far beyond this life. So as I am at the beginning of another year I wonder what will lie ahead? Will it focus on what is really important? YES, of course it will if that is where I put my energy! 
That is what I plan to do!  One very important lesson I have taken from this past year is that I need to write.  So I am beginning a new blog.  I am not sure whether I will revise this one, or begin afresh.  But it will take a look at service, family life and the joy and challenges that come to a family with a dear one with limited abilities.  I hope that you will continue to follow along and.  And thank you so much for taking the time to read my bits and bobs this past year.  I have so enjoyed it.
I hope you are looking forward to a wonderful, love filled year ahead of you. I know I am!
