Goodbye 2017 I hope the door kicks you in the ass on the way out


Recommended Posts


2017 was a challenge:
     my sweet Daisy died
     I attended the funeral
        of 5 life time friends
        all younger than me
     a family member was grazed
        by a bullet in Vegas sniper attack
     I broke my hand and foot
         surgery on hand
     I began caregiving
         my failing husband
     I had breast cancer
         surgery and radiation      
     I watched helplessly while fire
         devastated my community
I happily say goodbye to this year.
I look forward to 2018
     with hope and optimism.
A very Happy New Year everyone.


Ok pretty negative which isn't my norm. So I guess I should say

2017 was an adventure,
         Daisy is now without pain
         I celebrate my time
            with Tom, Bruce, Maureen, Bill and Rob
            they live on in my memory
         Courtney survived Vegas terror attack,
             has an exciting story to tell
         My hand and foot have healed
              back to normal 
         I'm soon to get help with husband
         Done with cancer, no chemo
              Thank you Lord
          Sonoma strong, fire storm over, 
               community came together
I am grateful for coming out of 2017 whole
and look forward to taking on a new year.
