Thank You for 2017 - Happy 2018 - My Resolutions

It is about 8 PM on January 3rd, and my lightning fast mind just realized I haven't posted any pictures from my Mom's birthday yet.  Terry brought me a CD of the ones she took, and I took several myself.  The thing is, when your birthday is on December 18th, it is immediately overridden by Christmas preparations.  Right after Mom's birthday was my granddaughter's birthday on the 20th and an employee was the day after that, and then it was suddenly Christmas Day!

I don't have any pictures in this laptop, so you will still have to wait awhile for birthday pics.  I'll get around to it -- I promise.  And, no, I can't put the CD in here because this laptop does not have a CD player.

Mother received over 30 cards from you very loving and kind internet friends of mine.  She was so blessed by them and so was I.  The people who were here for her little party were amazed at the cards she had received.  She has them all in her room so she can look at them whenever she wants to.

I did make a VLOG for you about her birthday.  If you haven't seen it, here it is:

Part of the following VLOG was made on Christmas morning, and Mom talks to you in it.  I am showing you a cookie that was sent to Mom by Shari Marie.  Purple butterflies!  Mom loved them.

So what about those New Year's resolutions.

I don't really have any, other than the ones I have every day, all my life:  Love God, love people and try to be the best ME I can be.

I thank all of you who took time to listen to me and talk back to me with your kind, helpful comments this past year.  And thank you all SO VERY MUCH for being so kind to my Mother and giving me your helpful advice and tips from your own experiences with loved ones.  I know I will cherish you all the more as her illness progresses.  Nothing heals a hurting heart like loving friends who truly care and have been through what you are going through.

I'll be back soon my friends.

Hugs, Joy
