When I started this blog a little over a year ago, I did it because several friends told me to start one. Since then, I’ve had some troubling times. I lost a cat that I had rescued off a street. She was 13. I was unable to attend my brother’s wedding in Atlanta because of health issues.
Earlier this year, I lost my girlfriend due to illness. We had known each other almost 30 years and the days since then don’t get any easier despite what people say. A couple of weeks later, a former colleague and friend died of a sudden blood clot. And my stepsister almost died as she is battling bone cancer and slowly recovering.
And I, myself, am getting worse with my back and knee some days. It’s been hard. I do the blog to give myself something to do each day. I am glad that someone out there is reading it and glad to know someone new is following me. I welcome any feedback you can send.
