Word of the Year

My word for 2012 is HOPE.

How could it be anything else?  I hope for wind in my sails, carrying me steadily along.  I hope for days filled with peace and joy.  I hope for new yarn and new projects.  I hope for love and intimacy that knows no bounds.  I hope for God’s love and comfort.  I hope for 365 days of breath in my lungs and steady legs to carry me.  I hope for friendships.  I hope for new beginnings.  I hope for flowers in spring.  I hope for a garden so big.

Hope.  I’ve looked at the word so many times it looks funny.  That’s a lot of hope.
