The Year of the Dragon (and Other Things That Begin with ‘D’) So Far…

So, we’re not yet two weeks into the Chinese Dragon Year and already there have been several depressing news.

The homeschooling forum that I am on recently lost a member to cancer.  I never got to meet her in person – only through the wonders of the internet.  She leaves behind a husband and two young sons, 9 and 11.

A Little Aths mum lost her husband this past week, also to cancer.  She is now a single parent to their 14yo son.

An internet friend lost his mum to cancer.

Another mum on the homeschooling forum just had surgery for – you guessed it – cancer. She may have about 5 years left.

Several people I know via the internet (as well as IRL) are going through a divorce.

Death, Disease and Divorce.

I’m ready for something different.
