A new year

Last year for the first time I chose a word for the year. My word was "Trust" and it was appropriate. Throughout the year I worked hard at trusting God, and it paid off. I learned a valuable lesson and despite many many challenges, 2011 turned out to be a great year. And I am so thankful! Which is what lead me to my word for 2012....
Gratitude! I just ordered this necklace from The Silver Diva's shop on Etsy. I love it's simplicity. I have not ordered from this shop before but I can't wait to receive my necklace! Somehow it made a difference wearing my word around my neck last year. It was a great reminder!

I have also created a Gratitude Pinterest board for myself. I have already added several great sayings & ideas for the coming year. For now I will leave you with this thought, which is my goal for 2012.....

Start each day with a Grateful Heart.


That's my plan. Do you have a word for 2012?

My word is positivity. Despite life's challenges and changes, I am going to try to see the positive in every situation. If you see me sounding negative, please call me on it.

oh Ellyn! That's a great word!!!
Thanks so much for visiting and leaving your sweet comment on sweetjeanette.com. Probably if I had not chosen my 2012 word as "grace", gratitude would be one I would love to grab. hmmm... maybe I have my word for next year already??? LOL

What a great word for the year! Lots of scrapbookers chose a word & create an album throughout the year about it - I haven't tried it yet.

We're home - it was great! See you tomorrow!?!
