Word for 2008

I noticed on a couple of blogs that some have picked a word for the year...well, this got my brain thinking and thinking AND thinking and now on January 16, 2008 (better late then never!) I have decided on a word for me...YES, it's OPPORTUNITY!

I want to take the opportunity to ...try a new lipstick (I have worn the same shade-Mocha Freeze- ohhh, forever!), plan a girls night (with girls I don't know well) , send good mail more often, memorize bible scriptures, watch a good movie once a month, make more phone calls, laugh more then cry, give more hugs to the elderly I work with, give the gift of "really" listening, wear a new nail polish color (other then clear!), work towards one or more of my life goals, take a chance with trying something new, (the list could go on for a very long time)... I want to take the opportunity this year!


To start I am taking the opportunity to participate in the Travel SWAP . Check it out. While I haven't traveled many places I do have the dream of traveling!

Do you have a word for the year?

I can't wait to hear about all the things you take the opportunity to do! And let me tell you, you're being downright INSPIRATIONAL to me and my sweet husband - we're making lists of 100 things to do, and memorizing more Bible verses, studying more together. Thanks for pushing us!
