It’s time to look back on my year and see what I’ve come through. And ponder where I might be heading. And wow, it has been quite a year once again. I think I have five vaccines now for Covid? And yes I will keep getting boosters; that is my decision. I will also not be driving a semi across Canada for freedom from what?? I have freedom. Blessed freedom.
Mom is now 90 years old and doing quite well. I treasure all of the moments that I get with her. I appreciate all that she has taught me and all that she has sacrificed for me. She is the most amazing woman that I know.
Our community did not get evacuated for forest fires this year. Instead we were trapped due to floods on our one road out of town. What will it be in 2023?
The trapline cabin has lovingly been restored to how I remember it. There is still work to be done another time and I officially started trapping this winter. Having a great time with friends. Learning a lot. In the woods. On the land. Beautiful. Granddog went through the ice on the creek. Scary, scary. I was able to reach him, grab his collar and pull him out.
Came close to losing a son which I won’t share details on, but I am so grateful to have him and to look forward to good things happening for him (and all three sons) this coming year!
And my hubby and I continue to adjust to his Parkinson’s disease and all that it involves. Finding out it is not so much about tremors as it about brain changes that affect mobility, energy, anxiety, depression, the ability to process information and so much more. We are managing thus far. With the help of God.
Hopeful for 2023. Good things will be happening! Life is life. Have to live it and not wait for it to happen. I’m not sure what to blog about in the upcoming year and about the regularity of blogging. I would like to blog more often. When I started this blog, the topic was suicide and losing my oldest son. I’ve blogged about Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, grief and survival. Hmmm not sure what is next.
Ohh and we went to see Burton Cummings at the Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg!
