As 2010 comes to an end, my first reaction is hallelujah, this is one year I am more than happy to send on its way! I can’t wait to hang up the new 2011 calendars I received for Christmas, 2010 was not one of my better years. Thinking a bit more about it, however, I must admit there have been some good parts to this year after all and one of those good parts has been discovering the healing power of blogging.
This seems like a perfect time to express my gratitude to all who have taken time to find and read my blog. Thank you. I want to give special thanks to those of you who have also taken additional minutes out of your days to leave supportive and encouraging comments. The intangible support of readers “out there” and the more visibly tangible support of readers who also comment, are both invaluable to me.
Also, I am grateful to have discovered blogs written by others “like me,” as well as a few others by bloggers who are not “like me.” I am, after all, defined by more than cancer and loss. I really do look forward to reading their blogs next year and I’m grateful for these newly forged friendships.
If you’ve been contemplating beginning a blog of your own, 2011 seems like a great year to get started on it! I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.
If you’d like to, please share with me your favorite or most helpful post thus far. Also, if there is a topic you are interested in hearing me ramble more about, let me know that too.
Finally, here are a few holiday photos of some of my biggest supporters. These four-legged friends do their supportive work daily, unknowingly, willingly, unconditionally and with tails wagging. Well, the dogs anyway!
I hope 2011 brings love, peace, happiness and good health for all of us!
