And So Begins 2017...(jan 1st)

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book.  Write a good one..

2017.  All I can say and hope for is that it is better than 2016.  2016 was not
 the best of years for us, but as Rima says, 2017 is the year of the Monkey. 
 Definitely has to be better.  For all of us.  Happy New Year everyone.  

As I keep reminding myself daily, there is always something to be thankful 
for and grateful for.  Ask yourself, what are you grateful for today?

Many changes has happened in our lives.  Not all good, but at the same time lots of
 positive things as well.  We took a leap into something new and here we are in Branson, 
Missouri experiencing a change we both longed for.  It's different, but still good.

My heart can never and will never be able to get over my Brutus nor Shadow, but 
I hope that it gets a little easier.  Honestly I am doing the best I can, but
 there are days when everything just comes crashing down on me and 
for a while I am back to grieving.  It definitely comes in waves.  

I can't forget, but I am always trying to be positive and to focus on what has to
 be done. I hope this year is going to be much better for us, that I don't always carry 
sadness in my heart and that no matter what, I never take for granted Arvid and
 all the goodness we have together.  The possibilities sure are endless.

  And now we welcome the new year.  Full of things that have never been.
May 2017 be the year that we have all been waiting for.  Cheers to all!!!

Although no one can go back and make a brand new start,
anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
This is the beginning of anything you want...
