As we leave behind 2017 and enter into the new year of 2018 we look toward a new time of renewal and look back on old memories of the past year and we reflect on what we can change to make the new year better than the last one. We spend time thinking about the ones we have lost to death or who just are no longer in our lives for some other reason. I like to think we remember them with kindness and reflect on how they changed and shaped our lives.
2017 hasn’t been all that bad but it wasn’t one of my best years between all of the shootings, political hoop, which person was better or worse, who lied the least or the most, or some other kind of stuff it all boils down to what is best for the country as a whole. I’m not sure at this point any one person is right I think it is going to take the nation as a whole to come together to make things work out for the best or I feel we are doomed to repeat what we have always done in the past 200 some odd years.
As I look back on 2017 I know several things right off the bat that as a whole I am hoping I can carry over to 2018 and that is all of you in cyberspace who have been here even when I haven’t. It has been a heck of a year for my writing it seems that all my words have kind of dried up for a while and it isn’t that I haven’t had anything to say it is that I just haven’t been able to get them down on paper correctly or the moment I look at the paper to write all the words that are inside my mind that I see go quiet and for a writer that is the worst feeling to have everything go quiet. So the big thing for me in 2018 I hope that the words come back so I can start doing this again cause I really love telling a story or just writing a blog and interacting with all of you. Another thing I know is that I want to take all my friends and family from 2017 to 2018 I think we are all in for a new adventure to which should be fun and different but still within the ream of not way out there.
Now I want to send a special shout out to my friend “murphysmission” I want to thank you for always listen to me during those nights when I was first new to Facebook and neither of us could sleep or maybe it was just we like the earlier hours when it was quiet on the internet and we shared a passion for writing and friendship with long chats in morning hours but it was nice and I did enjoy it. So thanks do me it was fun and I will never forget. I still owe you a painted porch LOL and you owe me a cup of coffee and conversation. LOL Who knows when that might happen but it will be fun to see won’t it my friend. Love ya girl and thanks again.
TO ALL OTHERS I WANT TO WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY NEW YEARS I HOPE EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU HAVE A SAFE ONE AND THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO THAT NEW YEARS EVE PARTY THAN DRINK RESPONSIBLE AND HAVE A PERSON DRIVE YOU HOME OR TAKE A CAB SO YOU WILL GET THERE SAFE AND YOU DON’T HURT YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE.
GOOD BYE 2017 AND HELLO 2018
