This past year has been both a challenge and a blessing. My mother had two heart surgeries and then a heart attack. We sold our lovely brick home with a pool :( and moved to a foreclosed property so we would be beside of my mother and father and be able to take care of them. My mother was diagnosed with cancer twice. Melanoma and rectal cancer. After her heart attack I was lucky enough to be able to bring my Mom home from the hospital and take care of her while she recuperated.
This past year my daughter Jess became engaged! She is getting married this coming May to a sweet young man that we love. She just graduated from college and got a good job before she even got out of college. My daughter Jenn got a job this past year too after graduating last December. I am blessed to have two wonderful daughters that I am proud of.
Blessings for me this past year include having a lots of great friends, a roof over my head and food on my table. And we were lucky enough to have a white Christmas this year.
I have only been blogging for a few months now and I love reading your blogs and get to know some of you through e-mail. I hope this next year I can show you more of the remodel of the place we are living and share some projects. And get to make more blogging friends!
