Has it really been a year?

Published November 2, 2015 by lynn k scott

I was standing at the sink, cleaning up after tonight’s dinner and realized that it will be a year, this month, that I created the Pink Herald blog.  I never expected over 150 followers, to my somewhat sporadic writing.  I never expected to find such comfort and peace in sharing my random tid-bits.  Let’s not forget how much cheaper blogging is to therapy.  While, at times, I have sat at the kitchen table, tears streaming down my face as I told my stories, it’s been such a blessing.

Even though my life is still somewhat chaotic, I am more content and comforted by how this past year has played out. While my only surviving sister and I have cut ties, I am ok with it.  I have rejoined the local Blue Star Mothers chapter and even was elected back to the board as Vice President.  My lil miss and I found a local homeschool group that was so supportive and enlightening.  We’re still part of that group, even though we recently made the decision to send my daughter to a private, Christian school.  She’s LOVING it by the way.

I have found a church to call home.  I am now assisting them in the social media realm and have recently been asked to take over the bi-weekly newsletter, while a fellow church member is recovering from cancer.  I was honored to be asked.

We got new neighbors and they are a breath of fresh air.  They are outgoing, kind and we’re becoming good friends.  Our girls all get along and I feel safe with my daughter playing at their house.  I never worry when she’s there.  Folks just aren’t that neighborly in cities anymore.  I miss that and I’m glad we have the opportunity to get to know each other.

My proudest accomplishment this year is the birth of The Kathi Cares Program; in my sister’s honor.  If you missed what the program is about, you can read all about it here. Since coming up with idea and sharing it, a local massage therapist has offered to give gift certificates for the cancer patients.  My close and very inspirational friend, has already donated $25 and I can purchase my first gift card for this December’s recipient.  I even have a PayPal account established in order to help secure donations.  I will work to grow this program into an inspiring, community-based, non-profit.

I have read some truly wonderful, funny, tearful blogs in the last year.  I thank all those who take the time to put their thoughts into words.  I appreciate those who find my blog worthy of following.

Here’s to another adventures year, while tip-tapping on my laptop to put my my brain dictates what shall be in written form.
