Embrace 2013


My doodle for the year.
Can you believe that one twelfth of the year is gone! It seem to have flown by is a flurry of sick, school stuff and that's about it. I have also with one twelfth of the year gone never blogged about my word of the year. My word for 2012, "HOPE" certainly stood me well. We had a mostly positive year filled with HOPE for the future, and when we hit stumbling blocks, I could grab back to HOPE to fill me with the strength I needed.

I really did not think long and hard about a word for 2013. Hunter sent me on a wonderful spa day (still to be blogged about) on the day before Christmas and somewhere in my wonderful massage session EMBRACE just came to me. It's time to live this year, not just survive. To go forward with positive intent.

It's time to EMBRACE my relationship with God. Read more, pray more
It's time to EMBRACE my marriage even more. To grow on the path we have set.
It's time to EMBRACE the differences in my children. Not just tolerate them.
It's time to EMBRACE friendship. Not just go with the flow. Reach out more
It's time to EMBRACE the relationships in the extended family - also including grandparents etc.
It's time to EMBRACE my creativity more. Do more, create more.
It's time to EMBRACE our home. Big de cluttering needed. And some more.
and
It's time to EMBRACE myself - take better care of myself. Yes, being sick 3 times in the first month (I now have a cold) does mean that I failed in this when I got sick the first time, but I am turning this around. I am also going to embrace my grooming more, my health, my eating habits, my exercise.

So onwards, to EMBRACE 2013.
