Yes, there was a lot of bad news but there also must have been something good that happened in 2016. Right? Let's see: My youngest daughter got married. That was great news! I knew I could find something good to remember 2016. What about you?

We can wish one another many good things but the truth is we have no idea what tomorrow may bring.

I lost my home, and yes, that was good and God's will for me. I'm in a much better place and things are much better for me financially than ever before. So yes, something good happened in 2016.

So, you lost your home, and it turned out to be a good thing, as things are better without a home. Interesting! Thanks for sharing!

@Micmac Yes, now we get to say, "Are the kids coming over today?" We used to say, "Is Josh coming over today?" I like saying "kids."

Haven't done anything great in this year but I have so many lessons from my mistake and hoping that the following year would be good for me.

In 2016 my son went to a nice middle school as a grade 7 student. This is a good news for us. It is a milestone for him.

My younger son decided to tell me and his dad how he was feeling about college. He just got his master's degree and was going for his PhD but is feeling burnt out and needs a break. He has been feeling like this for over a year, so we are grateful he told us and made some decisions.

@1hopefulman It is, I think he has probably made the right decision for now. He has been in school full time for over 20 years and he is only 24. I'm very glad he told us he sounds more like my boy, when for the past 2 years he didn't sound like my happy baby.

I had to go to hospital due to a stroke- but it was not too bad, and I have almost recovered from it.. but the good thing was that they found out that I have to control my blood sugar, and am feeling much better now when I do it.. - and I have to walk more, which is very good too Please tell your daughter that I wish her and her husband a happy marriage!!

Oh yes , there's a lot for me . One is that our daughter passed the Medical Board last September , second , she passed the pre-residency at St. Luke's Hospital and is now a resident doctor already . Thirdly , she will be able to come home even though it's on the 26th -29th only , this December . We will be celebrating a belated blowout for her passing the board , for her birthday which is on Christmas day .
