I love the idea of having a word of the year instead of a resolution. After much thought and consideration my word of the year is....drum roll please!!!!!
I read it on a friend's blog...It was a Talk to Me Tuesday post
The reason I chose my word as patience is because honestly I need more of it. With the selling of a store in the middle of economic ugliness, raising the three kids, running the store, being a halfway decent wife, being a laurel advisor...to a great group of girls who teach me more than I teach them.... loving the Savior and striving to be more like Him and less like Dory in Finding Nemo as she speaks whale...it brings a smile to my face jsut thinking of it...Paitience is something I lack. For example when a pair of alligator boots are marked as 75% off and then the customer asks for additional money off my psirit tends to get a little bit rumpled. Then as they are buying it they pull out a roll of hundred dollar bills it makes me want to scream. Yes, patience is indeed needed in my life.
