This is the first year that I have picked a meaningful word to guide me in the new year. I have always been a person who was afraid of change...I like things to remain the same....but life does not work that way. In order to grow you must go through change. Over the last 3 years we have been thrust into a cycle of change, some of it has been self inflicted, some of it has been out of our control, some of it has been devastating, and some of it has been a blessing. In 2013 my family will be experiencing some changes that I feel will be the pinnacle of this cycle....so I have decided to face it, embrace it and enjoy the ride!!! Have you picked a word to guide you and your family through this next year?
