Sunday, January 6, 2013 BE....

 ...Happy 2013 my friends!  
May it BE all that you hope for filled with 
good health, true happiness and a whole bunch of love and laughter.
I love the word "BE".  
While many of my friends were busy planning their "word of the year", i struggled a little to come up with that word before January 1st.  
I just couldn't embrace a word that really spoke to me at this point in my life.  
I am so very blessed and content and i needed a word that reminded me to savor life's moments.  

My 2013 "life word" is "BE"....'s my favorite speaks to my soul....we have so much to BE every day. 
This year i will BE happy, healthy, content, curious, and prayerful.  
I will BE grateful, kind, content, quiet and patient.  
And this year i will BE a mother in law!
...I will just BE... 
...i will BE who i was created to BE...
(and i mean it!)
....and set the world on fire!
What will you BE in 2013? blessed...
