Now that the year 2017 is almost about to close it is good to reflect and look back and recall those more than 11 months that just passed by... As for me, among the "good things" was my change of career from being in the advertisement/research field to being in the law office/legal field. Another thing was my daughter finishing her high school and celebrating her 18th birthday. She'll be going in the university next year. My wife career as a nurse is going good. On the downside was the ear infection (right ear) that I got due to bacteria that requires medical attention. I have an appointment this coming 8 January 2018 for a follow-up check up with the EENT although I can feel that my right ear is now getting better. As the lyrics of "Poems, Prayers, And Promises" by John Denver says: "I have to say it now, its been good life all in all..." I look forward for the year 2018 with a New Hope and I know that 2018 will be a very challenging and promising year! Good luck to everyone. Picture credit: samaa.tv

I look back over 2017 and God has richly blessed my life! My walk with him has been strengthened and it's much fuller than it was a year ago. The minuses of this year 2018, to do away with negativity and any form of criticism, of other people and also, of myself. We are our own harshest critic, in many cases!

The start of 2017 was a bit of complicated for me and there was a bit of a struggle but I met new friends who became my family as well in the first quarter of 2017 and everything went smoothly. My 2017 started soaring high and it's ending with a bang!

You have more good than bad, and that's a good thing. I hope the ear infection clears up. My pluses: Book published, off three medications from five, perfect Christmas with my children. Minus: Blood clot in my leg - now healed.

In July made it a year that I've been in my current field as a legal receptionist. It's very interesting. We also bought a few new inexpensive things for the house too. Next year, we need new windows and some painting done. It hasn't been a bad year.
