School, family, life...
School is my salvation as of late, I need it to keep me sane, to give me direction, and learning makes me smile and I enjoy what I see around me. I am meeting people I enjoy, and wish to continue to get to know and move on with. Grades are fine, and this coming year I finish my electives and then the year after I do my Honours papers, and I will be done Undergrad, then on to my Masters in English. That is going to take some work and dedicated time.
My family is growing up and decreasing. My daughter has graduated from Concordia, Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction, and we could not be prouder. She is flying on with her life. Go Miranda!
My son is growing and changing into an awesome young man. He will be 11 soon, so much yet for him to discover and do. All his teenager firsts are to come. Nathan I hope you will handle them with grace, and style and intelligence, and not give your parents any more grey hair.
My Husband and I will be 30 years married this summer. Not an easy time it has been, but we are still here. My in-laws are very ill, and we live with uncertainty. My Mother in law is entering into the last stages of Alzheimer’s. We are all pitching in to help with her until we get her into a care home. My Father in law just had Cancer surgery – survived but has a long road ahead. My parents so far are in good health, no one knows what will change.
My life is an unexplored road, in which I travel and have no clue where it will lead. Things are so uncertain, and things will change, and I have to focus on the above to be able to get through it and have the strength I need to be strong in whatever capacity I am needed. So no time to write and upkeep a blog...Maybe one day I will come back, as a different person, as I am becoming my own person, finding my own strength, and insights. However, for now my focus is my life, my family, my school...
However, for now, I leave you with a quote
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ciao, Adieu, until later. And Cheers!
Love and Best Health to all
