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.

Would you choose one for me?

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.
