What’s In A Word

Some of my past words: Reach (2014), ? (2015), Simplify (2016),  Strength (2017).

Continuing with a tradition started with Sheila over @ Book Journey, I am selecting a new word for 2018, a word to reflect on throughout next year.  This year my word is Joy!  While considering this for my word, I began to see it a lot.  It is the holiday season, so it’s no wonder.  I was definitely feeling hints of this word last year too.  I thought I would hang onto this thought throughout 2018!

Going through family medical issues for over a year and having successful outcomes, I feel we have a lot to be joyful for.  I will call on this feeling throughout the new year.  Being joyful, also brings on feelings of being grateful to the powers that be.

I appreciate all my friends who follow my posts.  I wish you much joy this holiday season and much joy throughout the new year.
