Well although it has been a rough year, I am peeking around the corner and getting ready for 2019! For this blog I wish to focus on all the good that occurred this year rather than the negative!
This year brought about many exciting changes~
My daughter moved home to help me but because I was doing so well (and am now) the tables have turned and I get to be her mother rather than her my emotional caregiver!
My husband has stepped in and taken a front seat on this ride with me with my disorder, Schizoaffective Disorder. He is coming to therapy with me to try to understand my disorder better and has even taken over the finances and yesterday we went over all the debt and he didn’t even get angry at the bottom line! It”s bad but he’s gonna fix it because he is good with money, where I am definitely not.
Both my parents are still alive although not in the best health. My mom especially is improving every day and will be moving soon to a retirement home which will be really good for her!
My son who is 19 has started college at last and just finished his first semester with strong grades and lots of play on the community college tennis team. This is a miracle that he has managed this and I thank God every day!
My oldest son announced his engagement to his longtime girlfriend who I very much approve of. The wedding is in April 2019 and the plans and excitement are so much fun! Maybe getting closer to being a grandma too!
I am closer to my sister than ever due to her stepping in to help my mom a ton when I could not!
Looking forward to a great Christmas, simple and family time. Only exchanging gifts with immediate family.
My disorder is at bay for the moment. Hospitals do that to you I think…
Also this year I met some amazing people along the way but that will be a blog for another day.
Bless and peace to you all!
