Another year.....

This year started with a recovery and what I hope is breaking of bad luck from about the last 10 years or so.  The recovery is mine....a total hip just before Christmas.  I'm progressing well, I think but it's slower than I'd like.  I think age is catching up with me somewhat,  so right now a cane is my constant companion.  I picture it with my grandmother whom I loved with all my heart, but not really ready to be "there" yet, ha! And as for breaking bad, there has been so MUCH in the past few years, loss of 5 close family members, my husband's business closing, my cancer etc, etc.    This is what I have found from all of it,...that humor and joy need to be my best friends.  If you can see the bright side in things and let the "stuff" roll off, -it's a much better place to be.  Somehow, this year feels like it may turn around.  I have nothing to back that up....just a feeling.
I haven't been out of the house much to the doctor, and once to the grocery.  When the call came to babysit for Cooper, we gladly said yes.  It was a sunny hour and a half  ride to their house and I enjoyed the relief from cabin fever!  Seeing them was icing on the cake. 
What a ham!  I think he'll be an entertainer when he grows up.

The many faces of.....thanks Cooper for all the giggles!!!
