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.
I'm an almost 56 year old woman. I'm mother of three almost grown up kids, Will, 24, Kara, 22, and Peter, 20. I've been married for over 24 years to Frank.
I love to do creative things like needlework, cross stitch in particular, knitting and crocheting.
