Was #2016 really that bad? I’m sure you had some memorable days 💚

My daughter came and sat next to me this morning, flicking through her Facebook photos of 2016 … and it was wonderful to remember some wonderful moments we had during the last 12 months. Yes, it was a challenging year with sickness and bullying, but it was also a wonderful year with the occasional trips away, our holidays to Canberra and the NSW coast, or having my mum here for six weeks. We laughed at the photos when we went for a BBQ in the bush, or camping, or had my husband’s family reunion.

We easily forget the wonderful moments because we so quickly get drawn into the rapids of grief of the international news. Of course, it was sad that we lost stars like Prince, George Michael, or David Bowie because they were part of of our lives for such a long time, but it shouldn’t define our year that has been.

Please, do flick through your photos as well to remember your memorable days of 2016.

  1. Sounds like you had some great memories mixed in during the year. It’s always great to capture those moments and hold on to them.

    I lost my husband in May of this year. I cherish each memory and each photo weather it be an actual photo or a memory in my mind.

    1. I’m so sorry, Crystal, to hear about your loss. My sincere condolences, it must’ve been very hard for you, but I love the idea that you can go and look at photos and remember the happy times you had. That’s wonderful! Thinking of you ♥

  2. What a beautiful positive post Iris! And it’s so true, we shouldn’t lose sight of all the great things that have happened to us this year. Thanks for sharing this with us! May 2017 be a fantabulous year for us both! Simi xxx
