As the first week of the new year comes to a close I begin to think of the new year ahead and all of the possibilities it brings. I've never been one for resolutions, but I think the idea of having a word of the year, a mantra if you will, to keep in mind as I go through the year is a great one. I have decided that my word for this year is 'overcome'. This applies to so many aspects of life, but I believe if I can take things one day at a time, making those small victories, I will continue to overcome.
The beginning of this week marked the end of Christmas. I continued the tradition of giving Chris a message to open on each day of Christmas. This year I was inspired by the song. On each card I stamped a word that represented a gift from me. I enjoyed seeing Chris's reaction as he opened the cards every morning.
I wish you all a wonderful new year. What will your word be?
