OK, two years in a row Ali Edwards has done her word post. It really is quite overwhelming... last year TOO much. This year, I perused the list and decided to just watch what Ali et al does with these words... until ACCEPT popped off of my screen! It really didn't look any different than any of the other words at first glance, but it seemed to be following me throughout the list!

So... I am going to attempt to ACCEPT this year!

I need to ACCEPT that:

I am NOT neat! I love to organize, but have problems staying organized

I will always have to work! I will never be able to be a stay-at-home-mom/scrapper...

I can not scrap 24/7! I have a life, love, kids, that need me more than my photos sometimes!

I have to work hard at being a great teacher! Kids change... I need to focus on learning not just teaching!

I am the best mom that I know how to be! I don't always do it right, but I always have their interest at heart!

I am the best wife that I know how to be! And I will always be loved for that.

I am me! I will always be me, and this is who I am as a person.

I can not change things! As much as I try, there are things in this world that I can just not change! I do not have powers to fix the things that are beyond my immediate "world!"

And I will learn to ACCEPT this for all that I am! And I am OK with this!

Lights Out!

cool word!!

I think what is especially great about choosing a word is what it means to the person. If it makes us look at our life a little differently, then it is a good word!!! Then at the end of the yer, reviewing the year in relation to your word is pretty amazing! It goes back to what you think about is what you get!!! Hmmmm..me thinks there is a mini-book project in last years word!

Have fun with your word!

accept that cassie will ALWAYS be one of your best friends and she will follow you whereever you go so you'll have to ACCEPT to learn to live with it.
