A friend on Facebook asked friends to post one word for her to take into the new year. I did the same. The following words in bold print are the ones that my friends shared with me. I added my feelings and hopes for each of the words.
I am blessed beyond measure. I have my salvation, my son, my extended family, many friends, a good home, a pretty good vehicle, plenty of food and water, and enough fabric to make many quilts.
I look forward to a wonderful new year singing and worshiping the Lord, spending time with my son, extended family and friends. I also look forward to a wonderful year of quilting.
I hope to show empathy for my fellow man and help when I can.
I hope to trust in the Lord completely and to be able to trust the people I come into contact with.
I hope that I am able to participate in something delightful. I have a feeling that I will tonight as we are going to a Sacred Harp singing.
I hope that I will always remain appreciative of all of the blessings that I have received.
I hope that I will desire more knowledge of the Lord and study His word more as a result.
I hope that I will be able to believe in the good in people.
I hope to have fun at least every week. I hope to laugh more and quilt more and talk and listen to my son more.
I hope that the Lord grants me resilience in that the aches and pains that are part of my normal life will be at a manageable level.
I wish you a very Happy New Year full of wonderful possibilities!
