Focus – 2017 Word of the Year

Posted in Family, and Thoughts

I have not been able to come up with my 2017 word of the year. I had many ideas, but nothing seemed just right. Yesterday, I was reading several blogs where they were talking about their word of the year and their goals for the year. I still hadn’t nailed down my word, but I was slowly weeding out the ones that weren’t a good fit. This morning, I realized that my 2017 word of the year at been there all along. In many ways, my answer was in the search. This year, my word of the year is focus.…

Looking Back at 2016

Posted in Family, and Thoughts

It’s always fun to look back at what took place during the year. There were both ups and downs, but I like the remember all of the blessings we encountered along the way. It should be interesting to see what the new year of 2017 has in store for us. January – Shoulder Surgery D’s shoulder surgery was quite the ordeal, but we made it through it. The military hospital really dropped the ball on quite a few things, but the shoulder was repaired which was the main concern. The road to recovery would be a painful, slow process, but…

It’s hard to believe that the final week of November has come and gone. It was a busy but good week. I’m thankful that I was able to move around the kitchen well enough to get the full Thanksgiving meal done. We had plenty to eat and the leftovers meant that I didn’t have cook as much over the weekend. 🙂 Both Munchkin and D had off on both Thursday and Friday, so we were able to enjoy extra family time together. Yes, they still had some school work to do over the long weekend, but having a little extra…

Giving Thanks 2015 – Week Three

Posted in Family, and Thoughts

Last week was an interesting week, and it really made me think about how thankful I am that my family is healthy. Yes, I’m still hobbling around with one crutch and suffer from frequent migraines. Yes, D has his shoulder issues. Yes, Munchkin is suffering from more frequent headaches these days. Yet, in the grand scheme of things, these issues aren’t so bad. My neighbor, who has all of the heart issues, found himself back in the ER when he couldn’t breathe. It turned out that he had blood clots in his lungs. He spent a couple of days in…
