I have two friends that blog and each year they choose OLW(one little word) to define, inspire and guide them for the year. Irene Latham's OLW is DELIGHT. Visit her blog to read about all things that delight and are delightful
Patricia Weaver's OLW is INSPIRE. For inspiration throughout the year, visit her blog.
So what is my OLW for 2016? It is FAITH! Why? Because we have to have faith in our work to send it out to be read by others. There were other words I thought about like courage, perseverance or persistence, but I'm being sentimental today.
I said goodbye to Mom on December 28th. She had faith in her six children, but more important she had faith in GOD and shared this with us. Her sweet smile and laughter will be missed. Her joy in spite of a stroke that left her paralyzed on the right side, did not stop her from learning to write with her left hand and send out Birthday cards. She doubled up on reading God's word.
She loved reading my short essays and stories.
So for you Mom, this year is a year of Faith for me.
Please share your OLW or books you have been reading. What craft books would you like to see reviewed this year?
Don't forget to sign up in the rafflecoptor to win one of the two books for January's book giveaway.
See you next week when hopefully I will be less sentimental.
