In reading some blog posts, I noticed several were linky parties about resolutions. I decided to link with Primary Powers for their One Word Resolution. I never seem to be able to keep resolutions. I make them on January 1st each year. In a good year, they might last a month. Most of my resolutions are lucky to be in place after a week. Setting a one word resolution is different. I think by choosing just one word may work as a focus for me.
I considered many before I chose what I thought was the perfect one for me.
So what is my word?
The new year has me thinking quite a bit about being appreciative. As my own children get older, and have lives of their own where hubby and I are less of a significant influence, it makes me appreciate every moment we have together.
Hubby is the love of my life. He has supported me through so many difficult times and walked beside me in new adventures. He has always been my biggest cheerleader. Although I may not always say it or show it, I really do appreciate him!
After thirty-one and a half years, I can still say I love teaching. I have been fortunate to be able to have my "job" change just enough to keep me challenged, interested, and revitalized when I needed it. Along the way, teaching became a part of me that cannot be easily separated. I do appreciate having a career I love.
So for 2015, I will appreciate everything that life has to offer.
