Hello everyone! I just wanted to send a message to you all saying Happy New Year! I hope 2018 is a year of happiness, learning, discovery, achievement, family, friends, and the stuff that makes life interesting.
I am highly thankful that 2017 is officially over. This year for me as been one of the most awful ones I have ever had in my life. It began with the death of my mother Michelle. She was an amazing lady who died much too young. She was only 47 years old and just did not wake up one day. This year has been one filled with trauma and tragedy in my life I have never experienced before. There will never be a day that goes by that I do not miss her with all my being. The high and lows have been quite a roller coaster. I am highly thankful for my family and the support of my friends. I am so happy to be running a history blog again! I am looking forward to a long year of sharing and getting to know this amazing community!
PS. Below is a photo of the Bell I rang at midnight last night. It is quite an awesome bell and was built by my grandfather many years ago. I love it!
