I do like a little stroll down memory lane before moving on.
You too? Well, then read on until the end.
2015 was a fantastic year at My Soulful Home. I had such fun getting to know you better, opening my door to so many new friends and giving you all bHome ~ the app. If you haven’t opened that gift yet, get to it here!
Purchasing our new/old house was a highlight, but 2015 also brought some of the deepest sorrow I have known.
A person I held so very close to my heart lost a long hard fought battle.
Typing these words are a struggle as I still cannot fully grasp her absence from my everyday. I know she is with me in spirit & see signs of her communicating to me. But how I miss the shared laughter, her encouragement, sense of humor, smile and the fact that she just “got me”.
There was never enough time before school pick ups & in-between errands to get in all we wanted to talk about. We joked about bringing a list so we could stay on target & get all our topics covered. Even now, I can’t believe time did truly run out.
A friendship such as ours, so tightly woven, is one of life’s most special gifts. I am so blessed to have had a friend such as mine for as long as I did. The threads she stitched on my heart will continue to weave through the fabric of my life.
Gosh, I didn’t start out with the intention of sharing all that…
I was planning to recap some of the crowd pleaser posts of 2015.
Shall we do that? Funny, I can hear in my mind my friend saying “Absolutely!!”
She said that word often & with gusto.
Like when I asked her …
“Think I can make a go of a blog?” “ABSOLUTELY!!“ – was her reply.
And, so I did. Here are some blog highlights from 2015 – photos throughout ~ links below.
Thanks to you all for adding your thread to the fabric of my life.
