“Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.” ~John Lennon
2015 has been a year of change, most of it surprising, much of it unwelcome. The older I get, the more I believe the old adage that the only thing constant in life is change. Since there is usually little we can do to stop changes, we are left with basically two choices:
- Curse the darkness
- Light a candle
I haven’t had the opportunity to research my own family lately, let alone write about them. I do feel bad about that, especially since I am impossibly behind in my own Challenge. But where changes have taken me away from this facet for awhile, it has given me other things. I have been doing a lot more journaling. I’ve had to focus more on my business, which means spending more time writing for my blog at AmyJohnsonCrow.com.
Some of you have asked how my mom is doing. She has recovered very well from her surgery; we are thankful for that. I don’t want to share too many details, but I will say that she still has quite a journey ahead of her. All of us are trying to adjust to the changes… awaiting the changes yet to come… and praying…
[EDIT: It isn’t my intent to look for sympathy. Just sharing why things have been quiet over here. That being said, if you want to think some good thoughts for my mom, that would be appreciated ]
