I have been looking at Tab and Toree's posts about the Word of the Year Contest from Tip Junkie and am feeling inspired! Tabetha's "relax" necklace is gorgeous and what a perfect word choice for the new year. Toree posted some good thoughts about her word choice, "believe". I enjoy visiting Tip Junkie as well. It is a great place to get new ideas and inspiration, especially for all of the "mom-prenuers"!
My word for 2009 is welcome. I paint this word over and over again and it never gets old. We think of it as welcome to my home, but there are so many things I want to be welcome and open to in my life. I didn't really make resolutions this year, but my word got me to thinking about things I could change and ways to better myself.
If you know me, you know I love lists! Here is a list of things I am going to be more welcoming of in the future: Bible study, time to do things for or with friends, individual time with each of my kids, talking to my grandmother regularly, branching out creatively, cooking healthier, and donating/giving more generously. I could go on and on, really!
