Trials and Triumphs

Just a few more days and we will be in the last month of the year.  It hardly seems possible that another year is about to slip into history.
How has 2012 been for you?  Did you reach some goals?  Celebrate a milestone?  I am sure some of you have gone through some difficult times and are glad to see the end of the year.  Others know their problem will continue on for some time.
Like you, we have had challenges and victories.  My husband's youngest sister was diagnosed with and then defeated cancer.  We have a friend who is, with faith and courage, continuing to fight the same disease.  Another friend has had to deal with a devastating family situation but, she too, continues to trust in God and know she will have the strength needed to keep going.
We also have had some family problems and don't see any immediate solutions but we continue to experience many blessings. 
My book completion is on schedule and should be ready within a week.  We both still enjoy good health and never a day goes past when we don't give thanks for living in such a wonderful place.  In a few weeks, we will be celebrating Christmas with my family.  This is the first time I have been able to do so since I was fifteen.  My Canadian brother won't be there but as he lives near by, we are able to visit often. Life is good.
