My word for 2017 is HOPE !
1. a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
synonyms: aspiration, desire, wish, ambition, aim, goal, plan, design;
2. a feeling of trust.

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!

    Hello Phyllis. I was just entering my points on the Indiana page and saw your post. I had to post here and say hello, because ... well, my mother's name was Phyllis and she was always called mamaw by the grandkids. She has been gone many years now and is always missed. I hope you have a fantastic day after your successful day yesterday! Take care and be well. emoticon
