How long has it been?

A year. Been a year since I've blogged, it has. Maybe it's just the holiday pull-the-plug feeling, but I have not been inspired to write about much the past few days. Searched for a 'fried fridays' story and the most incredulous ones all seemed to involve alcohol abuse, which I didn't want to write about in a humorous light. I also have a 40-something friend who was just diagnosed with colon cancer. Tuesday before Christmas surgeons removed the tumor, with additional tests showing it had spread to the liver. A loving wife and dedicated mother of 3 young boys...doesn't seem fair, does it.

There is the other side of the coin that this time of year brings...the spark of turning over new leaves, pre-spring cleaning, starting on creative projects that have been in the idea stage too long. And so I imagine we all look for that 'balance' to level our floating boats, especially at this time of year. Happy New Year to all y'all, and may we all hold our heads high and tackle the trails ahead.

Hey Bob,

Sorry to hear about your friend. You know, sometimes things happen like this that sure makes life seem unfair. Makes no good sense. Perhaps in the days to come you will be able to give her some comfort in the loving friendship you share. My heart goes out to her, and to you, in dealing with this situation.

All the best in the new year....
