The end of 2018

So today is the last day of 2018, and me, like many others I’m sure, have been thinking about this last year – the highs and the lows, the memorable events and the immediately forgotten events, the friendships strengthened and those posted missing.

I discovered that in my first blog post of 2018 I said:

We may not know what lies ahead of us this year, but whatever 2018 may bring our way, I pray you will find the love, strength and support to face it all, both from your family and your friends, but even more so from God.

Little did I know when I wrote these words, what 2018 was going to have in store for me! 2018 for me has been a very unusual year, as having not felt great since the start of the year, I was told at the start of June I needed major surgery, so from then until my surgery it was a struggle as I didn’t feel great and had to watch what I wasn’t overdoing thing. Then since my surgery at the start of October I’ve spent the remainder of the year off work recuperating and gradually trying to build up my strength and get back to my ‘normal’ (whatever that is!).

So for me this had been a difficult year health wise, however on other levels it’s been a great year, as my faith has probably never been stronger.

So now as I look forward to 2019, I pray for a health and happiness in this coming year for myself, my family, my friends and each of you who follow and read my blog.


  1. It has been a real difficult year for you but I’m so pleased all the prayers were answered and your surgery went well. So please you are making such good progress. I pray 2019 will be the start of healthier times for you and you can start to do some of the activities you’ve been unable to do for so long. I thank God for 2018 and all the answered prayers, in the knowledge he’ll do the same again in 2019!
    Happy new year to you!


    1. Thanks Dianne. It has been a tough year, but thankfully now starting to feel much better following my surgery. So hopefully, once I fully recover from my op, 2019 will be a year of feeling much better and being well enough to do all the things I want.
      Happy new year to you and yours too. .x
