Looking back on 2016, it has been a rough year for me. In just the last month I have been absent from my blog it was a roller coaster. My grandfather was in and out of the hospital with declining health before he passed away peacefully on December 16th 2016. I had wanted desperately to see him one last time but was never able to make the trip to Florida. The last time I spoke to him was while he was in the hospital, for about a minute I was able to talk to him before he became winded and the entire time it took everything in me not to cry on the phone. I hold the memories I have with my grandfather closer and I thank God that I and my siblings were fortunate enough to spend entire summers with him and my grandmother. It left me with many fond memories that I have been reflecting on daily.
While we were in Florida, all my girls fell ill. My older two with a stomach bug, my youngest spiked a 104.7 fever which landed her in the Er where we learned she had a bad double ear infection. Last night she found herself back in the Er because she had been vomiting bad and stopped eating and drinking. Everybody in my house is battling a bad cold. Needless to say these last two weeks have been brutal.
I gave up book reviewing. So much has been on my plate, and I devoted myself to my writing which I haven’t even been able to focus on the last couple months either. With 2017 just hours away and seeing friends and family making resolutions I have been contemplating how I would like my 2017 year to go.
For starters: it’ll be a hell of a lot better! It has to be!
I intend to get at least one book published (traditionally)!
I am going to strive to be healthier!
I also want to aim to read at least five philosophical books this year.
I hope every one of you has a fantastic New Years! Stay Safe and as always Happy Reading! 😀
