What was the most significant thing that happened to you in 2018?
For me, this happened at the end of the year, when Jupiter went into Sagittarius. The affect was very good. The events were spiritual in nature. 🙂

Wow. 2018. I went in to have carpel tunnel release surgery and it was discovered that my mitral valve prolapse had developed into severe mitral regurgitation (the valve was not closing). So I had open heart surgery in June. Never in my life would I have thought this would happen. Everything went well but I had other (not uncommon) complications and had to have another emergency procedure and another surgery. But I’m cool now. I’m back.
I keep thinking…this time last year, I had no idea what the following year would bring. It’s wild. It was all necessary and it was difficult but I’m good.
We found out in September that we are going to have another granddaughter ❤️.
This whole year has made me even more emotional but I don’t know if that’s fleeting and a result of everything that happened. Aquarians + emotions = 🦠 Aliens or a virus.

The most significant thing that happened to me in 2018 also happened to me at the very end of the year – in December, to be specific, and it is now ongoing, non-stop.
It is something I had been struggling with for YEARS, hell: DECADES. I tried this and I tried that; I tried doing something, and I tried doing nothing.
Finally, mid December, I gave up. Altogether gave up. Calmly. Without any forethought or anything.
Out of nowhere, I simply gave up. Stopped. Period.
As I type this, I am made to see… I walked away from what was A CORPSE. (I had not seen it in those terms until right now.)
Anyway. I not only walked away.
I walked straight into “another place”.
And wow! WOW! Everything I had been wanting, striving for, WORKING HARD for… there it was. It was rained upon me! Showered upon me! While the sun shone on! You know that awesome weird euphoria you feel when it starts raining while the sky is blue and the sun is shining? And a rainbow pops out of nowhere? And the grass gleams a vibrant green?
My cup runneth over.
I am filled. Fulfilled. The thing could stop now, and I would be ok. I FINALLY got what I wanted and needed.
I can now move on. Free. Liberated.
It didn’t take much. A few weeks of my need being met, and voila, the need is no longer.
A-ma-zing. Just friggin A-MA-ZING!

It will sound trivial compared to what everyone has written. After about 6-1/2 years I escaped a co-worker that made my life 90% more stressful than necessary.

Hmmm…. 3-graphics cards in 3-computers died ((luckily found same graphics cards online at a reseller…. EXPENSIVE!!!)). Brother kicked-out of house by his wife and now living with me. 2-elder members of Family passed away.
Best thing…. started writing a story online forum for writers…. and made a major repair on my house that saved tons of $$$’s.

The death of my husband.
That has changed everything. I don’t even look at life with the same eyes anymore. You think you’re gonna live forever, that things are going to go a certain way, and then, BLAM! You’re broadsided and it’s all over. You’ll be forgotten within two generations. So what are you going to do with your life while you’re still here?

My mother passed away right before Thanksgiving. Other than my husband and siblings, I have been unable to say the words to anyone else. This is the first time.

This year things have happened around me. I seem to be the calm center of a vortex. Hopefully, fate isn’t just bad at hitting the bull’s eye.
The most significant long term item is my husband taking care of his mother part time. We live 200 miles away. She broke her hip last year. It’s gone down hill from there. She decided physical therapy doesn’t help. She refused to go to a nursing home. For a period of time, only my husband had the strength to pick up his 200 pound mother. They did rent a lift for a while. During the late summer and autumn I saw my husband only on weekends. After his sister retired in October and could help more, my husband is here a week, gone a week. I worry about his sister, since she has lupus and doesn’t need the stress, emotionally or physically. She has put off a hip replacement.

I finally got a puppy. I had been waiting to get a puppy my entire 10 year marriage. If you knew how my husband was, you would understand how significant it is.
