Hello from Phyllis
My word for 2017 is HOPE

"Be encouraged. Hope is still in really good hands"..John Pavlovitz
"The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something!"......President Obama
"Each time someone stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lots of others . . he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope." Robert Kennedy

My word for the year 2016 was ADVENTURE !
It was a good word and forced me to step out of my comfort zone many times.
Some adventures were with friends, some alone and many that I will always cherish.

From: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you.

From NoS: Sometimes it takes a false start (or 12)
So quit dawdling and get some failures under your belt!

Next year word "Joy"? From Wanda (LIVINTODAY)
This is part of Fra Giovanni's Christmas Prayer

"I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not; but there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.

No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take Heaven.

No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in the present moment. Take Peace.

The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!"

    The True Spirit of Christmas

    To believe in making wishes and have faith they can come true.
    To believe that you can find some joy in everything you do.
    To believe in giving gladly for no reason, just because
    To believe in love - thatโ€™s what it means to believe in Santa Claus
