I am glad to see 2017 coming to an end. Although it has been a bad year for me and Nancy it has had a saving grace, America elected Donald Trump, and that is very good for everyone. We lost a beloved dog, Nancy lost her youngest brother to cancer and her sister lost her husband to that dreaded disease. We had costly breakdowns on vehicles and on some equipment here on our small farm. However, we trust 2018 will be a better year for everyone.
It is sad when people you love die and our wonderful pets go to that place over the Rainbow. We are ever grateful for the things we have, each other, our other dogs, and wonderful friends and family which all makes life worth living. We hope 2018 will bring peace to the world, good health to all, an end to the assaults on our President and that God in his mercy steps in to help the United States to help alleviate the treachery we are witnessing.
We can all take solace in knowing the next sunrise brings warming sunshine and perhaps a little more peace to the world. As in each Rainbow appears in the sky we see God’s promise, he is there, and he will step in if it gets too bad for us to handle. Each day is a new beginning. Let us hope and pray the New Year will bring peace and contentment to us all.
To all my friends and family I wish you the absolute best of times, good health, and good fortune. Non-carborundum illigitimus, don’t let the bastards wear you down.
