Give Away, 12 Hours Left! Grace, My 2012 Word

New Year's Eve, it has sooooo much potential doesn't it?!  It is a day to reflect back on the previous year, reveling in the joy and cry for the losses.  It is the day that we either choose to live in the past or reach for the future...

I would love to hear what your "word" is for 2012.  I have in recent years as encouraged by my cousin chosen a "word" to use as a touch stone for the year.  This year my word will be "grace."  To approach all things that I face in living without my mom, in settling her estate, in meeting a new grandchild, in seeing my youngest son marry...with grace.  Although I suspect there will be no grace in meeting our new grandchild and seeing my son marry...but only full out crazy joy!!!!


I love this quote by John Kennedy.  I have tried to work on "not" living in the past and carry forward the joyful memories.  I have had a harder time concentrating on the present and not worrying about the future.  But the men in my life are more present oriented and that is a gift. And, I have such wonderful girlfriends...they are a blessing to my life, rounding it out in a richness that I cherish.

2012

  11. Happy New Year, Anna. It is already 2012 here in Australia. :)
    I think my word would be Contentment- to strive to be contented and grateful for what I have, to not dwell in the past or worry about tomorrow, but just do the best I can each day. :) I think this means finishing up some projects too!!! :)

  12. I love the idea of a word for the year. My word is "change" as 2012 will bring many life changes my way: retirement, relocation, making new friends and saying goodbye to old ones. The quote from JFK was very fitting. Happy New Year Anna!
