every year my friend Ali posts a story about her 'one little word' for the year and every year i try and join along.
i usually pick a word, but time gets away from me and i ususally don't end up doing much with it, other than remembering it and trying to keep it a focus in my life.
sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't - because life happens, and i'm okay with that.
it may come as no surprise, based upon my recent posts, that the word i have chosen for this year is
as i mentioned before, the center where i was treated and where my oncologist was is called the Willamette Valley Cancer Research Institute, and they also call themselves the 'Believe Institute'.
i haven't gone many places where i haven't seen this word in posters, advertising, christmas ornaments, etc and so i want to concentrate on this word.
as a 'sub' word for the year, i'll also be concentrating on the word
so many people sent me cards, e-mails, letters and phone calls to wish me well and tell me they were praying for me. it really taught me a lesson - when i'm prompted to send a card or and e-mail or make a phone call, to just do it. because you never know when you'll bless someone, or receive a blessing from them. i need to be a better friend.
so, if you're inclined, head on over to Ali's blog and post your 'one little word'. you never know the journey it will take you on
