Resolution word - BE

Friday, January 08, 2016      7 comments

I was introduced to the concept of using just one word as a resolution. My friend chose her word, LISTEN, after much thought. That struck me as an excellent word. I think she is already a good listener though. This will perfect her listening... Read more
