Each Christmas, I write a letter to my son capturing the highlights (and low-lights) of our year. I have them saved in a special box for him to read when he gets older (which will be here in the blink of an eye, I'm sure).
Anyway, each year I include a quote, song and word of the year, also. This year's song is Hello World, by Lady Antebellum, quote: "What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?" (love this), and our family's word of the year was PERSEVERANCE. I simply love that word! It means so much: never giving up, moving forward with strength, overcoming obstacles...and so much more. As we approach this new year, we are taking on a great adventure as a family: we are moving! Our home~sweet~home officially goes on the market on Monday, January 2nd.
Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all health, happiness, and perseverance for 2012!! Now, I search for my word of 2012... xo Sarah
