My word for the year

It's the new thing...A word for the year.  Everyone seems to want one word to define them for the year.  I know some have chosen words to help them focus, slow down, simplify, relax or remember.  But how can one choose just one word.  Words are powerful indeed. At the mention of some words we cringe, cry or fall to pieces.  Some words can evoke joy, dreams or pure silliness.  So I ask again, how can we choose just one.  I love words- because words indeed tell who we are, what we are about and what is important to us.   In this process of choosing one word, I want a word that encourages me to live wonderfully.  After much thought, my word for the year will be "many."   Many lives to help, many hearts to touch, many projects to create, many lunches to make, many hugs to be given, many songs to sing, many memories to make and most definitely, many blessings to be thankful for.  So in choosing this word, I am choosing to live life abundantly.  In this coming year I wish for you Many happy days.

  1. That is one of the most special posts I have read. How beautiful...and such an unusual word to choose when asked to 'choose a word'. Such a good word though...because you are correct. I wish you MANY blessings today, both large & small.
