As 2018 Draws to a Close

Blog Post created by Barb102 on Dec 17, 2018

The end of December has always been a time of reflection for me. Sometimes good, other times not so much. But I’ve decided that it’s not just a time to look back. It’s also a time to look forward.  We have no idea what 2019 will bring. Let’s be hopeful. Let’s hope for little more joy and a lot less stress. Let’s hope our strength helps our health to improve. Maybe our hearts will be a little lighter.


I want to spend more time, smokefree, counting my blessings. I’ve heard that when you see cardinals, angels are not far behind.  I’m not going to just feed them. I’m going to be still and let their quiet peace come into me.


Holidays can be stressful. Holidays bring up memories that can can be sweet and also painful.  But I really believe if we  can recognize and acknowledge all of the good things we accomplished this year. I know it will make us stronger.


i stopped smoking after numerous tries and a 40+ years habit. I did it! I don’t do that anymore! NOPE. My one year anniversary is coming up in January.  I’m so excited. I tell everyone I can. I can’t help it. It brings such a smile to my face. Sounds silly but it puts a rainbow feeling in my heart!  


I couldnt have accomplished this without you, my dear friends. I wish you many blessings in the year ahead. I will be here for anyone that should need help. Just like you all were for me!
