It has been more than a busy year for me this year with so many things, both good and bad, happening. But, like so many others, I end this year with a smile, grateful for all the blessings in my life and all the birds I’ve seen. I am mostly grateful for the safe return of my son from Afghanistan, and the fact that so far, my mother has survived breast cancer. While she is still undergoing her chemo treatments and she has lost all of her hair, her spirit is still positive and she is looking to the future with hope. So…Good-bye 2011 and Hello 2012! May you be bring hope, peace and birds!
I want to thank my husband Gus, who has been so supportive through all of this and has put up with me being gone so much whether to help with my mom, visiting with friends, or going birding!
Happy New Year from both of us!
