Feeling Sentimental!

I am sitting here reflecting on the last year,
It was a year of ups and downs,
I never in a million years thought  I would ever venture into blog land,
Nor was I aware of what I would find here,
Or that people could connect with one another,
showing, kindness,grace,interest, compassion, encouragement, friendship to be just a few
of my delightful surprises along the way.
I  have also brought some awareness to my condition of Severe Cataplexy.
I have been encouraged many times, asked many questions,
and have explained how it is to live with a Chronic Illness!
A genuine interest was shown. It is hard living with an invisible disability,
but I do my best and through you  I have got to see other places
through photography, laughed through your humor and have cried through your compassion
when my father passed away. The fact that people I had never met were genuinely
concerned and offered their blessings during such a difficult time
restored my belief in the kindness of others.
In my profile I have stated that I am comfortable in my skin, peaceful in my heart, proud to be me.
And I am now more so than ever!
I put the picture of the house in as I always have to look up to see it sitting there next door,
And a learning for me is that I am prone to have power lines in more than a few photos.
And that is okay!
I feel blessed that in the past year I have crossed paths with so many  beautiful souls!
I wish you and your families a very Happy and Joyous Holiday Season!
I have felt the true Holiday Spirit of Christmas through your blogs,
I believe, I believe!
I had very many Best Days Ever this year!
I am so excited for my future,
I am living my life
to have my
Best Day Ever!
I will be popping in and out until the end of the year,
So be well, be safe, Enjoy!


  1. Cinner, you are a lovely human being and your light shines through the screen into each one of us who reads your positive words. You are the most up beat person I know. You mention the power lines in the photo. Life has things like power lines in the way, but the magic is in the spirit of the person who took the photo and had the courage to post the picture in her blog for the rest of us to see. You share more than just words in your blog, you know. You share your resolve to be the best you can be and you encourage us to do the same. Thank you for that and so much more.
