Another Year in my Life


Today is my birthday.
I feel sad.
Another year has passed in which I have not done the things I'd hoped to do.
I have not been able to go visit my mother in the nursing home in Florida.
I have not lost the weight I gained.
I have not reached a point of feeling financially stable.
I have not returned to being creative.

I guess I need to look at a few positives...

I have a small circle of great friends.
I reconnected with some friends whom I had lost & I love them dearly & hope to see them more in the future.
I have my wonderful children & husband.
I do have a job that I like most of the time.

Birthdays. Hmmm...if only it was as simple as blowing out a candle & making a wish.

**hugs** to you Kimba! I'm sorry that the past year has been something of a letdown for you, and also sad to hear about the budget cuts you are facing at work. I'll keep you in my thoughts...

Thank you for checking in with my blog even though it had been a long, long, long time since my last post.
