Well it is getting closer to the official Festive season and life is starting to become a blur. Christmas parties, gift buying, gift wrapping, decorating, baking and cooking up a storm.
Before we get too caught up, I wanted to pause and take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for joining me on my journey this year. I truly appreciate all of your beautiful comments and feedback which keep me motivated to spread the message about positive ageing and enjoying life by being fit and healthy. I have loved getting to know you better and have formed some friendships with readers and other bloggers from all over the world.
This year was difficult with the passing of my father-in-law and caring for my 90 year old mother-in-law (Nonna). She has certainly had an ‘annus horribilis’ with the loss of her husband of 70 years plus ill health. Although we were expecting that day to come, we didn’t realise how much stress it can add to life and your relationships. I certainly value the wonderful efforts of all carers who so lovingly give their time to support their loved ones.
We all have problems and each year brings it’s own challenges.
As the year draws to a close I give thanks for my family, friends and also my beautiful friends in the blogging world. You have all made my year so much easier with your loving words of encouragement and support.
My word for 2016 was Balance. Balance in life. However, I’m not sure I succeeded in achieving that – perhaps in 2017, it is a work in progress. I actually have a word for 2017 which I will be sharing with you in an upcoming post.
Do you have a word that will describe what you want for 2017?
I will be taking a few weeks away from the blog enjoying some time at the Coast with my darling husband. I will be reflecting on the year and also looking forward to planning for new adventures in 2017.
Looking forward to a new and exciting year for all.
