    I forgot to post my word, but see that someone else has chosen it too...momentum. Although it's only early days, I am feeling the power of my word already. Thanks for being such an inspiration Ali.

    Persevere: Because well. I have M.S. about to have shoulder surgery and have had so much happen that we have had to battle seems we keep getting these obstacles thrown up at us but we always go over them through them around them and come out fine. Long as we have the good lord and the three of us.. we are all in!

    My word is "thrifty". Not just about money and spending but also about using other resources, and time, carefully and not wastefully. I found it interesting that "thrifty" in plants and livestock means strong and healthy, so I will incorporate that also. I'm looking forward to spending a year with my word in your "One Little Word" class. Thanks Ali!

    Sorry I'm late in getting this posted, but my OLW just came to me yesterday. It's actually a phrase and it's "Walk On The Water". It's from the song by Britt Nicole and it just spoke to me and as I listened to the song, it just made me cry. I'm so excited about the possibilities this brings, especially as I've studied the story of Peter walking on water. I'm going to take each verse out of the Bible and expand it out into a monthly conversation about what it means in my life. I am excited to get out of my boat of comfort and let go with faith and see what exciting things happen! :)

    My word is friendship, this year I will be my own friend, but I will also be more available to my friends as I am still finding it hard to make real friends after 10 years of expatriation..

    Forgot to put mine up! And it isn't there so thought I'd share. :)

    My word for 2011 is 'MODERATION'. This covers all bases of my world. Eating, drinking, cleaning, working, playing, scrapbooking, socialising, exercising. You name it, all is good in moderation. Obsession does me no good, it sends me into a spin. I make no promises to fix everything all at once this year, instead I will take the steps I need to take to become the person I want to be....once again.

    How fun! My word is EXCITING. If you have a chance to add it that would be great, if not i understand! :-) I love the idea of putting a copy in our book for OLW class. What a great way to remember the people who will undoubtedly inspire us along the way!

    Hi Ali, All the words look amazing when put into that CLOUD Graphic. I would love to do the class with you and am glad to know that I can join in at any time. I just have too much on to do it right away, and since my word was PEACE I feel I would be going against it right from the start by taking too much on at once. I loved the reading your friend did yesterday and wonder does she do readings for Meditation/Relaxation DVD's if not, she certainly should she has a wonderful calming voice.Well Ali, I will keep on with my word and hope to join you in your classroom when the holidays are over and my Grandchildren get back to School in Feb.
    Cheers,
    Bev......

    My word for 2011 is Anticipation.

    Anticipating answers to prayer, new friends to meet, new paths and memories made, enjoying the moments.
