There was a lot to be grateful for, and I nod at those people, moments and times. I learned a lot, about myself, as well. I vow to keep on reading, researching, thinking, playing, and writing.
Turning 60 was interesting. More of a whimper, than a bang. It sort of snuck up on me! I've found many of my blog buddies who keep calling me the "young 'un," which is heartening. They continue to dazzle me with their endeavours; their travels, hobbies, birding ventures. You know who you are! I have a few good years left! As I look at the changes in society, the rampant disrespect for elders, for example, I think of how much seniors have been accomplishing. Ageism still rears its ugly head, all we can do is laugh.
Hubby's health, happily, has settled into a slow rise in cancer cells. Every day above ground is a good day, at this point, when I recall the 1 surgery (Jan., 2014), 2 MRIs, 5 CT scans, 3 Bone Scans, 2 biopsies, as well as endless, monthly PSA tests. They were monthly, then quarterly, and now every 6 months. So far, so good. We can manage this. He's doing all the right things for his health and I am proud of him. We try to eschew the negative and embrace the good things that surround us. This truly helps. We still debate and discuss issues, but we realize the difference between the things we can change and the things we cannot. We never complain about the weather. We both LIKE shovelling snow!"Princess Leia rocks history of princesses" is Michael De Adder's editorial cartoon. https://t.co/H8ycJwukP9 pic.twitter.com/rEtDe7oKWs— TorontoStar (@TorontoStar) December 28, 2016
|I wonder if I agree with these?|
There is much to look forward to. There is a lot that I will recognize drags me down, I will let go of negativity, I love a good debate, but snarky has to go. It only hurts. I'm not hiding my head in the sand, but letting go the negative.
I don't have any resolutions, nor any fabulous goals. I am content to enjoy each day. The cats, the birds, the deer and other critters in our forest. Life is what you make of it.
