I have spent the last couple of days

really thinking of what I want this year

what do I want to do?
what do I want to change?
where do I want to go?

I also needed a word for this year

these are a couple chosen by friends

I have struggled with this in the past
do I really want one word to define my year?

then Christmas eve
during the candlelight service
it hit me ~ do you think He gave me a nudge?

I choose Sing!

it really is a no brainer for me
it is something I do without thinking
and on a daily basis

plus I already have a really cool necklace
with THAT word on it
that I got here

so am I taking the easy way out?

call me a beginner

so as I reflect on what 2010 was
and I am filled with hope 
and look forward to what 2011 has to bring...

Not the easy way out at all! I love that word for you... still thinking about what I want to use... this year is an important one for me!

Have a great week!


I just chose my word for the year, too. Sing is a lovely way to enjoy your year. I thinking singing helps the rough patches, too. Good choice.

I love your word! Is there a necklace that says "clean the closet"? I'll settle for "stop spending" or how about "SAVE".

your word makes me smile from ear to ear! I LOVE to sing. It just sounds happy doesn't it? Becky and I picked the same word without even talking about it. Isn't that funny?

I agree..SING is a perfect choice for you! Singing is something you love to do and you do it so well. You have a beautiful singing voice. Singing can be soothing or energizing. It conjures up memories and creates new ones...It helps us make sense of our feelings and express them. I hope this year is full of happy songs and that I get to sing some of them with you! Love ya xoxo G
