Happy New Year!

And welcome to 2013!

Things I am grateful for...

  • My Mum is still with us - fighting the good fight against the dreaded Cancer.  She has her good and bad days but accepts every day as a Blessing.

  • My Family - both the near and far.  Love and Pride for them all

  • My Friends - both near and far (up close and electronic).  Could not get through the days without your support! (and snarky comments - you KNOW who I mean :D)

  • My Faith.  Although I am not a Church goer I believe in God, and his Angels, and his son Jesus Christ (I also believe that there are many paths to Heaven and so long as YOUR faith believes in Kindness and Care of it's young, old & vulnerable - you're okay with me!)

  • My Life.  I have my ups and downs - my good and bad days BUT I am alive, mostly healthy, have my wits and mobility; and in a 1000 little ways am so much better off than many.  I certainly can not complain!
Things I would like to achieve in 2013

  • A New Job.  One where I am valued for my ethics, work ability and determination to Get It Done.  Surely there is one out there somewhere for me?

  • Slightly less health issues

  • A cure for Cancer  (got to hope!)

  • Love.   I haven't given up on the idea that I do deserve someone who loves and respects me.  (an ability to overlook or adore my quirky nature would help ;D).  Applications accepted at the sign of the Dexter-pawed Fox

  • That I rock my University classes!  (I am confident I can do this!)

  • That my Adopted Soldiers - both official, Unofficial and those I acquire via the Cup of Joe Coffee penfriend program or Letter writing team - stay safe, stay well and return home quickly to their families.  Prayers for them all!


  1. Your friends are grateful for you as well - I know that despite your own problems, you have been there for me when I needed!

    I have no doubt that you will OWN your uni classes!!! As for the job, you have a lot of friends out there helping look for you, and whilst the perfect job may not happen at first, it will come, and anything you do before then will build to that perfect job!

    The cure for cancer would be wonderful! Your mum is always in my thoughts and prayers.

    Isn't it terrifying that we've been friends for 20 years now!!! (well, terrifying for others...)

    2013 will rock for you!

  2. Well said, and I hope your wishes come true! And thank you for the poppy coin, I got it yesterday! Happy New Year Lady!!!

  3. Great post, Pax. And glad mom is hanging in there. Give her a hug from a good ole Georgia Boy, will ya.

  4. Good to hear you Mom hasn't stop sayin "No" to the dreaded cancer.
    Hang in there and "keep you chin up".

    May the new year bring to you all you need and some of what you want just for the hell of it.

  5. You have got to be one of the kindest souls alive. You deserve everything on your list. Someone great will love you at a time it is right and they are a lucky person! Glad to hear your Mum is tough and fighting the good fight. Cancer sucks. True that. Love and hugs to you and have a great New Year!
