One Little Word Blog Hop

Hop hop hop. I decided to join in this one which is unusual for me but thought what the heck. Try something different. I think I am about one of the last ones to join in but we all get there in the end.

I've done One Little Word two years ago and my word was RELAX.  I found a wooden Relax and liked having my word up in my studio to look at all year. That was really all I did to incorporate it into my life. It was a good reminder to slooooow down. Take it easy. I was retired and didn't really need any 'have-to's' in my life.

Last year there was no word. A lot of our life and thoughts were taken up with our little granddaughter who was dying from aplastic anemia. We also had that Snowmagedon. I had other things on my mind and occasionally missed having "A" word.

This year Ali Edwards has a class on incorporating your chosen word in your life. Who doesn't love Ali's way of teaching the profound through simple scrap booking. I glammed onto this.

My word wasn't one that thrilled me at first. You know, you think about a word, roll one or two around in your head and heart and somehow one just fits. You'll know it when you feel it.  I waited for one to come to me and thought, I want to be open to what comes. Well the word that kept coming was LEARN. I didn't like it, but darn you word, you just wouldn't let go, would you?!?!  So I accepted that God/the Universe had a plan for me for this year, and I would learn what it was in time. I would LEARN.  I don't know now because I have to...learn.

me and my word book

Now that you've read all about MY word, how about going and seeing Cheri. She's the next on on the bloghop list so go on...pay her a visit! (That's me, number 27.) Cheri is just after me below at number 28.
