Happiest New Year!
A few years back Chelsea asked us to pick a word that would be our theme word for the new year. Last year I picked the word "celebrate" as it was going to be a year of many happy moments, Yann and I celebrated thirty years of marriage, I turned sixty, we went on a Family cruise with Yann's family, my nieces came to visit, Chelsea and Martin married, my family came to France, Yann went on an adventure to India, friends came and stayed with us and a baby begun. The word celebrate seemed a given, an easy choice for an unforgettable year.
This year also has a happy note to it, the coming of a grandchild, it makes everything seem secondary and anticlimactic. Certainly, anticipation could be the word of the year, anticipation is at my hand and heart. though a year of Waiting though hopeful and promising weighs heavy on the word waiting, do I really want an entire year marked with the sense of waiting?
This year my theme word is Discovery. Discovering new life, new roles, avenues yet untraveled as a family. I am excited for this year to unfold and to meet the little one. Discovery sounds right.
What is word do you want to Define your New Year?
