My Word for the Year

It took a while to post it, but my word for this year is Purge.  Last year it was forgiveness, and it was a trial for me. Not only for forgiving others, but forgiving myself.  I don't know if I've been truly forgiven by anyone, but in all the terrible things that happened last year, I would hope so.  Forgiving myself though was the hard part.
This year I chose purge. I need to not only purge my house of unnecessary things, but my life in general. After the death of my sister and mother, I feel that it's time to bring more peace to my life. So here goes, I'll be letting you know how that goes.

Glad to see you blogging again. Every year I say I'm going to chose a word and then forget, will have to give it some serious thought.

Good luck! We probably all need to purge in a number of ways. My word is joy.

After all we went through last year, my word is HOPE. If I hold on to Hope, sometimes only by a thin thread, but if I really hold on, I can look forward to a better day, every day.

I do like your word, Laurie. Purging is in process in my home, too. It seems losing Mom and Marti last year has made me want to pare down and see only those things - or thoughts - that contribute to quality of life - not quantity :)

Good luck with your word. Purge is such a strong word. I hope it does amazing things for you.
