For 2012 I made a new type of new year's resolution. I chose "one little word" to live by.
My word was LISTEN.
Now that 2012 is coming to a close, how do I think I did?
Well, let's just say it wasn't monumental and I didn't do a slam dunk with it.
But, I must say that this one little word did whisper in my ear during the day
(like a small bird on my shoulder while I was wanting to cut off my child's 10 minute story that made no sense) and wake me up in the night (you know how that goes: you suddenly can't sleep because something is bugging you. I knew I needed to listen more.)
So did I do better this year at listening to my children, my body and the Spirit?
Well, better than I would have done had I not chosen the word at all.
So I think I can count it as a success!
My new word for 2013 picked me. I didn't pick it. You'll see...
