It has been almost a full year since I last posted. A lot happened in 2016. Let me explain.
The biggest thing is my daddy was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer that metastasized to his liver last year. His doctor told us she could treat him but she couldn't cure him. I am daddy's girl and this diagnosis was crippling for me.
But you know what? The year started off beautifully. I was expanding the bee yard and thinking about flower gardens. I was taking pictures and planning posts for lifeatelevenfifteen and Keeping Backyard Bees.
When Daddy was diagnosed it seemed like everything started going downhill. I couldn't write. My camera messed up. I didn't have the energy or the want-to to get into the beehives. If my husband hadn't tended the garden it would have been neglected too.
I suffered from depression. My moods were AWFUL! And, I had headaches like crazy.
I ended up going to see a nutritionist and a chiropractor. When I filled out the paper work, I found myself wondering if I needed to see a psychiatrist instead of a nutritionist! The way our food and vitamin intake affects us mentally is amazing to me. It has been a few months and I am now on maintenance with both of them.
In December, just before Christmas, Daddy had another scan and the doctor proclaimed him cancer-FREE!!
I am starting 2017 in church and recommitted in my relationship with Jesus. I am full of optimism and high hopes.
- Hopes of being a better wife.
- Hopes of getting the house back in order.
- Hopes of getting back in to the bee yard.
- Hopes of earning merit badges from MaryJanes Farmgirl Sisterhood.
- Hopes of JUST BEING A BETTER PERSON!
I hope you will allow me to reconnect and once again share Life @ 1115 with you.
See Y'all later,
