My tree of words for 2011 ~ January 8th


I had a little New Year’s Eve gathering at my house this year, and I did something different for a table decoration: I made a tree of words for 2011. To make it, I gathered branches in my yard and then attached paper leaves. Each leaf hides a word. Now every visitor to my house gets to choose a leaf so they can discover their word for 2011.




My word is ...



I was rather surprised to receive this word, since for quite some time, I have been on a bit of a hiatus from dating. Well, maybe 2011 is the year I will meet someone special. We will just have to wait and see. One of my friends got contemplation. Another one got optimism. I asked them if they were happy with their words, and they said they were. I would have let them choose again if they wanted to, but they declined. Do you have a word for the New Year? If not, I’d be happy to choose one for you from my little tree. Just let me know.

Liz, your word is Peace. Never a bad thing to have in your life. Happy New Year!

Beth - oddly appropriate. I was thinking maybe I could visit you during February vacation (the week of President's Day). Let me know if that's a good time for you. By the way...I like your word :)

Terry, I think each person gets the word they need -- so I have no doubt that you are surrounded by blessings. Do whatever you need to do to make the tough times a little less difficult for yourself. Sending you lots of positive energy from Maine, and a big thank you for your message! Take care, Beth

My 2011 word is adventure. That may have been the word for 2010, too, as I was ready for new adventures. Now, I want to build on the adventures I have been having. 2010 was the most amazing year and I am hopeful 2011 will be likewise. Wishing you a great year on YOUR adventure of finding a soulmate.
