one word..


My one word for 2012 was 'enjoy'.  Taking time to enjoy moments, the simple things in this life, and enjoy we did.

There was a lot of down time for me last year, adjusting to life without my babies at home, being that mum who could help in the classroom, bake and be homemaker.  I did enjoy the simple things and that word was always in the forefront of my mind.

The year 2012 was also a year for enormous change, challenge and despairing moments for the two of us as parents.  Life got very hard and unexpectedly complex, and that word 'enjoy' became an even more important focus.

This year, 2013, holds in store for us all kinds of wonderful.  With the impending arrival of a new baby in February, a new business to get off the ground, the big boys' last year of primary school, the middle hits grade 3 and the little guy is a big grade oner already!

Needless to say 2013 is not going to be an easy one, certainly a busy one, and we are going to embrace it for all that it may present.  

This new years word is going to be 'strength'.  I'm going to need a lot of it physically, mentally and emotionally.  This year I am going to be strong.

Happy New Year to you friends! May yours too be filled with all kinds of wonderful..x
