2010 Goodbye, good riddance and I'll miss you

Annus Horribilis: A never ending cascade of parental illness. Ovarian cancer, prostate cancer and now Alzheimer's. The last is nothing short of a slow motion horror film of the conscious, and yet not conscious, downward slope of confusion and forgetting. Countless flights to England. Moving from Florida. Endless worry and stress. And yet - the opportunity to be the person I aspire to be.

Annus Mirabilis: The steady unfolding of our plans. The children thrive, the wind blows, the snow falls, the roses bloom, the dogs play, the cat purrs. Our friends laugh with us.

May 2011 be an exciting year but a kinder year.

Wonderful blog, Penny. Thanks for sharing these wonderful stories.
I just found your blog (via Facebook), so 2011 is off to a great start.

Thanks,
