So how do we say it?? "Twenty-Ten," or "Two Thousand Ten??" I think I prefer the latter, but however we say it, I hope this is a better year than the last one and that we're on our way to recovery with a new appreciation of what we have and what we will hopefully get back.
A friend of mine came up with an interesting concept from another blog she was reading...to pick out a meaningful word that basically represents what you want to strive for in the coming new year. Well, over the last couple days, I thought long and hard. I told my friend that I wished there was a test so I could come up with the perfect one, but she said for me not to worry; that the word would magically appear and be just the right one. She was right. My word for the coming year that I wish to improve upon is "communication." And I hope to improve upon this with my husband, my children, my parents...and everyone.
Words are so powerful and we must not take them for granted. What may be a joke to one person, might be totally something else to another. Words affect people, and what we say or write cannot always be erased from the person's mind. So I plan to be more careful with mine...not that I wasn't careful before, but I'll be much more aware.
So I do wonder what everyone else's resolution will be? I'll just pick this one...and hope that I'm halfway successful with it. It's a big one.
Happy 2010!! However you say it!
