Introducing Heather’s Color of 2013: Green.
Not because I saw a girl’s shirt that said this:
But because in winter spirits are dreadfully tired of gray and white.
Green it is…
Yeah – I wrote this in January… but am publishing it now.
And since it snowed today, I guess this can be fresh encouragement.
Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
~ William Arthur Ward
Mostly I feel like I need to focus on GROWing.
Growing more wise.
Growing through challenges.
Growing as a mother.
Growing in spiritual strength.
Growing despite struggle (or because of struggle).
Growing more joyful in optimism.
Growing in patience & LOVE.
Love Green… and growth… and all the good that comes from it … as hard as it is.
