I don’t know what happened to push this year to a close, but we are right on the edge of falling into 2015. I’m impressed by what has happened over the last 365 days (in my little life), certainly not what I had expected. If we knew what was around the corners in life, we would probably run screaming in the opposite direction. What we do face and manage to move through only makes us stronger than before. 2015 will be filled with many more difficult conditions to plough through. However, there should be some bright points and possible trips to new countries and maybe even a week on the beautiful island of Maui.
My brother will ring in the new year at the rehab center. He is waiting to get a new home (with 24/7 care) until he can regain more control over his body. It’s not sounding too good for the long term situation. He has significant memory/cognition problems due to the lack of oxygen to the brain when the heart stopped. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed, get him on antidepressants, and start moving forward.
Today I sketched a chestnut backed chickadee. They only visit the feeder during winter. Again I used the Sketches program on the iPad.
May the new year bring about good things in your life! Thanks for all your support!! See you next year!
