Hello 2017 I don't think you know how happy I am to meet your acquaintance. Around here we are glad for the fresh start, the chance to live a another year that will hopefully be much kinda than the last. Another year to love and grow together, the chance to make more memories.
Although 2016 was filled with a lot of grief and hardships, there were moments of joy peppered throughout the months that I must not forget.
Our second born son reached the fabulous age of 21. It seems that it was only yesterday that we found out we were having him. Raising this kid has been a fabulous journey. A quiet achiever, he continues to grow and change.
Our third born son turned 18 this year, and although it is a little overwhelming that we now have three sons over this milestone age, it is also a proud parent moment that we have survived and managed to guide our boys into wonderful young men.
And if that wasn't enough, our baby boy turned 16 and graduated grade 11 in award winning style.
AND LEONARDO FINALLY WON HIS OSCAR
I have every intention of fulfilling these promises to myself but be aware that at times I may be yelling out to you all for some much needed support and I hope you all know that I am here for any of you guys to. Just holla...
So cheers to the brand new year everyone. May it be full of love and laughter and that you fulfill all of your dreams. I'll leave you with this.
Fifty two weeks
to be lived with purpose
and sixty five
to start over ...
