Another Year of Blogging!

I always do a collage of pictures from blogging for the end of the year.  When I went through my posts I realized that I mostly crafted and visited friends and family.  So I would say 2011 was a great year. 
I usually don't talk much about it on this blog, but living with cancer is difficult.  I hate it!  The doctors, the meds, the tests, the needles.....hate it all....but with that being said, no one thought that I would see 2012 come in.  But I am!
Cancer has robbed me of many things....time, hair, employment, energy at times, financial happiness.....but it cannot rob me of the love I have for my Lord, life, my family and friends.  And you my blogging buddies, you are truly some of my dearest friends.  You have prayed for me, laughed with me, cried with me....and no earthly words can tell you what it truly means to me.

I hope and pray you each have a wonderful 2012.....that there will be many joys and laughter, and few tears and heartache.....but that is the gift the Lord is giving us...whatever it brings......Another Year!

You really have had a wonderful year (minus the doctors, the meds, the tests, and the needles) and so have I if I look on the sunny side. Love your enthusiasm and so there is no doubt that 2012 will be a great year. Lots of family and friends, good times, and the Lord's blessings over all. It's been such fun getting to visit here and getting to know you better!
