It’s almost the end of ‘07 and I can’t help but think where the hell has the year gone? Every year around this time, I start to think back and reminisce on all the things that have gone on. 2007 was a HUGE year for me.
It seems a big part of my year were concerts. I saw John Legend twice. First I had front row seats to see him in
This was also the year for travel. I went on 2 trips. In March, I went to
Not all things were good this year. I won’t dwell on the bad things but I will talk about one thing because I’m still struggling a bit with it. I lost a good friend in September. Her name is Elsie and I met her through work. She was a patient of ours and passed at the age of 60. Elsie was one of the kindest people I know. We were quite close and often she would come by the office just to see me. I also used to up to see her because she just lived up the street. She was especially there for me when I was going through some personal struggles, always making sure to drop by to check on me or call. When she had an appointment, I used to meet her outside to help her across the street especially when there was a lot of snow and ice or just simply to help her with the doors because she had a walker. She died unexpectedly on September 21. Elsie got ill and went into the hospital and passed about a week later. What pained me the most is that I was sick with bronchitis and couldn’t go to visit her; I never got to see her before she passed. To this day, I miss her…I don’t think I will ever stop but at the same time, I try and smile, thinking that I know that she’s watching over me. R.I.P. Elsie
I’ve gone through a lot of personal growth this year that I’m very proud of. It’s too much to write about now though because I’ve been up to a lot lately. I’ll save that for my next entry. All I can say is I’m a lot more confident and a little less shy. People have said this to me before but I didn’t really start to take notice of it until the last few months. I know my strengths and can actually take compliments instead of getting all awkward and brushing them off. I’ve surprised myself a few times because I am getting noticed/recognized and people whom I hold in high regard have asked me for help. It’s still all new to me but it makes me feel real good in my heart even though I’m still “wow” about it all.
I met a lot of new friends this year too. I finally met
All in all, 2007 was a very good year and I look forward to an even greater 2008!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
