Scholarships: a New Year's Resolution?
Each year, millions of people around the world make all sorts of New Year’s resolutions: to lose weight, exercise more, reconnect with old friends, or start that new business venture they’ve been dreaming about for months.

The Year of.....FAILING - Posted 9/26/16
A year ago began a year of failing…first my husband needed shoulder surgery…which turned into 4 months of being out of work. Which is why I cancelled Christmas last year.…failing finances.
A month after shoulder surgery…we discovered his O2 levels were in the 60s at night. Yes, COPD was progressing…yes he started oxygen therapy at night…failing health.
A few weeks later I discovered out septic tank tank was failing…hopefully I could get it replaced before it collapsed completely…failing septic.
Yes I managed to get the septic replaced and had hopes of recovering from the whirlwind. But I was only just beginning the walk through the desert.
A lump formed on my husband’s hand…the MRI wasn’t good…again he was going to be out of work…we were going to lose all benefits…more failing health and finances.
Then the roof needed replaced…or else major repairs would be needed to fix water damage…failing roof.
Then three hours after my dear friend and her husband helped me order supplies to repair my roof…a tragic phone call came…he had been killed in an accident. Ugly crying…it bonds you to your friends…grief became part of everyday life.
