Welcome 2016!

Farewell 2015.

In 2015 I joined the Word of the Year Movement.  My word for 2015 was Grace.


2015 was a re-evaluation of priorities, a streamlining of lifestyle.

2015 was a year to dig into cultivating Gratitude as I was buffeted by cleaning out my mother’s house, losing my job, and dealing with the grief from the losses in 2014

2015 was a year I tried my hand at Haiku, photo challenges, Allergic to the Letter E challenges, F word Challenges (my favorite post to write, by the way) and several very kind awards.

2015 was a year when I experimented in different health supplements, only to find that they didn’t really help me much.  Thanks anyway Bee Pollen and Coconut oil.

2015 I met new blogging friends who I cherish in this blogosphere.

These were the 5 most active commenters on this blog:

The Presents of Presence

2015 was the year we started Bee Keeping.  I love my bees.  They are very comforting.

2015 was a year of re-establishing my confidence, and restoring the Kick Ass attitude I lost.0811[1]

I’m getting back to the Sass, but it’s in a Bee Keepers Veil, and Muck Boots.  Generally I’m a sweaty mess, and happy for it.

2015 was the year I discovered I love Zumba, and met 3 fabulous Gal Pals by getting out and participating in a Free Community Class.  Who knew if you go out in public, you might meet someone fun?

2015 was the year I learned how to drive a tractor and shred, make bee pollen substitute, split a hive, and locate a very elusive Queen bee!

2015 was the year I learned to breathe freely with less.

2015, I’m very grateful for you.  The ups, the downs, the highs, the lows….2015 you were a year of Great Grace.

2016, I have to say, I’m very happy you are here.  I’m looking forward to a great adventure!

Like my Friend Marla at Just Make the Coffee said in her first post this year.  I’m going to Enjoy 2016, want to join me?

  1. Thanks for this Wendy! My New Years has started out sluggishly. I fell into the hype of New Years Eve and had a disappointing time. It’s going to get better. Just need to feel gratitude and not feel down.
