The Light at the End of the Tunnel


I don’t know about you, but I had all kinds of hope for 2016. Sigh…

I have to say however, that it has not gone at all well. Sure, there have been moments, but overall this year has been shadowed by disease, panic, death and a general feeling of despair. In other words, not a lot of fun. 

I refuse to give up hope though, even as my computer insists on acting stupid, and if here at 9:45 a.m. the day is off to a rocky start.  Things have got to get better, right? It’s just a matter of having the strength to ride it out, and if there is one thing I have, it’s perseverance. I refuse to give up or believe that it will always be this way. If 2016 was not my year, than maybe 2017 will be. Who knows, maybe this year will even pull up and out of the nose dive it’s currently in, and balance out in this eleventh hour. Here’s hoping anyway! 

How has your year gone? Have things worked out the way you hoped?

    I too have experienced a year though with many good, happy, and fun times, overshadowed with a gloom of some impending dread. From one stance I retain my usual optimism and hope, but darker forces seems to be pushing back. Maybe after this election is over some of that will be lifted. On the other hand, maybe a reason for these glum feelings will rear its ugly head. Whatever the case, I’m hoping for a better year in 2017. I hope for me and for you and for all of us.
