The Year Behind and Ahead!

2007 held a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

My health has had ups and downs but for the most part I have continued to try hard to gain better health and maintain an attitude of Hope.

We have started a really exciting renovation which should be done by the end of March!
No family members or pets passed away. With parents 88 years of age this is a real bonus to have just spent another Christmas with everyone present.

My husband's chiropractic business is fairly stable and he earns extra income by teaching neurology at a school for Registered Massage Therapy.

I continue to be able to volunteer in a Gr. 3 classroom at my school while on a leave until retirement. I love it!

We have had many wonderful get-togethers with so many friends, it's unbelievable! Those memories are precious to me.
Life has been pretty good to me on the whole.

No one knows what is in store for them in life. I look towards 2008 with the thought that I quite possibly may come upon new challenges that may be difficult, yet I know I can count on my husband to be fully supportive as always.

I truly wish that all of you will be blessed with a very Happy New Year!

All year long, you've been upbeat and positive, but I'm not sure I fully realized how much until I read this summary of your life and year. You are blessed!

It's strange as we get older it is just the little things that mean so much during a year. May 2008 be a healthy and happy New Year for you and I hope your summary next New Year's Eve will be just as good as this one. x

Yea, life has its up and down and I know you've had your struggle this year. The good thing thought is that you've still shared your thoughts, ideas and experience on your blog with you and I always enjoy visiting and reading.
You know I love to read about Canada from you. Quite a lot similar to Norway, but also interesting deferences. Besides; we love the rural life and nature :-)

Another thing: You was one of my first blog friends about two years ago and I think I was some of yours. I still feel honoured to be on top of your blogroll!

Thanks for your Love vid and I wish both of you a Happy New Year too, or as we say it in Norway: Godt Nytt År :-)

A new year is like a birthday. It takes me awhile to get used to the number and to embrace it.
