Mixed Feelings About a New Year

Blog Post created by Cat_Mom_Jen on Jan 1, 2021

Good evening everyone,

 

One of my many New Year's resolutions is to keep in touch with you all more often, so here I am.  I hope you all had a nice Christmas Eve/Day and New Year's Eve/Day.  Our holidays were nice and quiet.

 

As the title of my blog states, I have mixed feelings about a new year. 

 

Earlier last month, I found out that my sponsor has throat cancer.  Not only is my sponsor sick, but so is my very good friend April.  When we talked on Christmas Eve, April wanted to wait to tell me what was going on until she talked to her mother.  I do not want to be nosy because I respect April's privacy.  My sponsor and April know that I am here for them.

 

On December 7, one of April's feline fur babies crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  In addition to starting treatments, April is mourning the loss of her cat. 

 

This is where I need your help.  Another one of my New Year's resolutions is to be "a part of" and not "apart from."  I just need to continue to share and be present on here.

 

Jen
