My word for 2011 was Cultivate. A word that has many diverse meanings and reflects much about my life. It is something that I have done, and will continue to do. It is inspiring to read so many words of affirmation and hope as we close the old and anticipate the new. I was reading Miss Buckles's post this morning, that she closed with a Norwegian saying, Blank Pages.
I picture entering the new year with a fresh moleskin, opening it up for the first time tomorrow to fill with dreams and accomplishments. It will sketch the steps toward a new business. We will plot the growth of our homestead. It will be peppered with snap shots of light capturing the growth and laughter of our children. B & I will chart our way through a year of hard work and focus, coupled with love and joy.
Yet the pages are still blank, itching with anticipation to be filled with illustrations of the growth, risk, challenge, uncertainty and reward that will come from jumping in wholeheartedly to the next chapter of our book.
A very happy 2012 to you, may your blank pages be filled with new adventures!
