Here we are the start of a New Year, and New Beginnings! Looking back to 2017, we try and see where we’ve been and how much further in this book of life we’ve come, we hope that we can pick up some of the memories and reflect just what we’ve gone through and how we survived another year.
My year has been full of joy, pain and excitement! In March of 2017 my second grandchild Isabella “Bella” was born adding another Blessing to the family. She joins here sister Emma who is now 3 years old, and they make quite a pair, and are working on the sister bond as I write this. Both cute in their own way, and send out much love to all they come in contact with.
I had a bad bout with Bronchitis in March which landed me in the Hospital Emergency room, but was lucky to have a doctor who prescribed all the right things to get me feeling better, took a few weeks, but am thankful I went as what was going on with my health was not getting any better.
Had a few Health issues which lead me to 2 surgeries in August, when a doctor says to you, be prepared for the worse pain of your life, you have to listen, and hope that they are wrong, but in reality you find out they were right, recovering from the 2 surgeries has been a long and painful road, and is life changing with the news of not lifting anything over 10 pounds the rest of my life, never really thought about how much things weighed until now, and it really limits a person more than one would think. But I am slowly adjusting, the hardest part of all this is, I can’t pick up my granddaughters, if I should it can cause problems and undo all the repairs that the doctors fixed.
I have been busy working on a couple more songs that I would like to get recorded this year, so be on the look out for those! I love to see the lyrics come to life with music, and hope I can continue on bringing music to touch lives around the world! If you haven’t taken the time to listen to any of the songs I’ve written, I hope you take the time to do so, as all my songs have a story and carry a message. They are songs of Love, Life and Loss…
Finally, the end of the year brought me another one of the best Memories of all for 2017. I was able to have a Quick hello with one of my all time favorite Country Artist none other than “Travis Tritt!” On this day November 11th in Merced, CA I was able to meet not only Travis Tritt, I also met his son Tristan. Such a wonderful family, a family that shows respect and are grateful to their fans, a day that for me will always be Special. As I recall that night, it always brings a smile to my face and a good feeling in my heart, that such a small act of kindness by Travis Tritt, really marked a day in my life I will never forget!
So, there you go, a year of joy, pain and excitement all wrapped up in 2017! Now on to 2018, what will this New Year bring? Only time will tell, but for all of you reading this blog, I wish you much peace, love and happiness. May your 2018 bring you all you’ve ever dreamed of, go out into the world and make a difference, just give a little of yourself and you will receive more blessings in your life than you ever imagined.
Until next time, sending much Love your way to All…
Love and Happiness, Sheri Lynn
