Let Me Take a Minute…

I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you for making 2016 a little bit easier for me.  Your kind words and likes makes me believe I am doing something right with my words.  I will try to continue to grow and improve with what I write.  I have a couple of ideas in store for this coming year.  I will try to continue to challenge myself with the daily word prompts and maybe take on a new challenge or two.  But for now the hour is late and all I want to say is thank you and HAPPY NEW YEAR to each and every one of you.  May 2017 keep the writer’s block at bay and bring nothing but creative muses to your desk.  (((HUGS)))

Day 97 – 100 Days of Happiness

I had dinner tonight with two dear friends.  One was a big help to me when I was going through my cancer treatments and the other has been a friend for years from work as well.  It had been far too long since we had gotten together to talk so dinner stretched out more than 3 hours!  We had to catch up on how our families were doing… and let’s just say it has been a bad year.  We decided tonight that 2017 has to be better… murder (of a family pet), suicide attempts, health crisis, alcoholism, etc.  We decided we should write a soap opera based on our lives as things have been so rough it is hard to believe.

But we got out laughter and tears.  Leaned on each other a little and exchanged wishes for a great Christmas and a MUCH better New Year.  We promised to get together more often and stay in touch.  It was a wonderful night with good food and great friends.  …now bring on that better New Year!
