2019: A YEAR OF UPS AND DOWNS.....
I've spent the past few days going over everything that has happened in my life, loved one's life and my community in 2019. It has not been a bed of roses; to say the least. Feburary 2019 we had a water main break and the pipe was UNDER the Great Miami River which workers couldn't get to for weeks because the river was exceedingly high...that meant boiling water, buying water & school closures. May 2019 a tornado hit Dayton like never before. My friends were displaced, my moms vehicle was destroyed and our city was (& in some areas still is) a mess. Several of my co-workers passed. In August we were in the news for the worst reason....Oregon District shooting where 9 people were shot to death. One of them being our old neighbor & my daughter's ex-boyfriend...I still have pictures of them hanging on the wall. If that wasn't enough; in November my relative, Officer Del Rio, was shot trying to serve a warrant. I have medical issues....congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, chronic edema, breathing issues along with other health issues. To top it off...my already strained relationship with my eldest daughter got a little more strained. She let me know that she's having a baby. Now I cannot do anything about all of the tragedy that has surrounded me in 2019 but I can look forward to a positive HEALTHY 2020! I have written down 10 goals I'm striving to achieve in 2020 and being healthy and losing fat is 1 of those goals. I'm too close to dying and it scares the poop out of me! My children need me. Even though one of my kids is grown, my 13 year old isn't. I've been selfish and abusing my body for far too long. 2020 IS MY YEAR TO SHINE, THRIVE & LIVE!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
