These three letters have a lot of work to do this year. I am using Joy as my word for the year. What does that mean? The easiest way to explain is this years word was determination. When I picked that word I thought it would encourage me to get things done, take care of myself, build the blog, and have some fun. I had no idea how much I needed that word.
Determination helped me through one of the hardest years I have been through in a long time. In order not to share information about others, lets just go with a summary of moments. Starting the year at the hospital with loved ones, ending it with more hospital visits and healing needed is just a small part of it all. Moving households 4 times in one year that are not yours. Meeting wonderful new friends in Florida while working towards selling a home and a trip across country took more determination too.
A couple of weeks ago I was having a conversation with my son in college about choosing my word for the year. I asked him to guess what word I chose? He quickly responded with Relaxation! It was then I knew I had the right word in mind. As you can see from above I chose JOY! What does this word thing mean? I will use this word to remind me of the direction I want to go for the year. In the dictionary joy is defined as; a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. A few synonyms are delight, jubilation, glee, exhilaration, triumph and exuberance.
Joy is how I am greeting the days of this coming year.

Now with the definition, explanation and pictures worth more than a thousand
words. Do you know what direction Joy is going to bring me in 2015?
