My word, my theme for 2007, is BREATHE. Life has been so insanely hectic since I started school three semesters ago, that time with my children and the man I love has become a premium, rather than part of my everyday. I was given the gift of perspective, if only for a brief moment, over Thanksgiving break. My family, home and God are THE most important things in my life. They came first and are the reason for everything else I do, not the end result.

I hope to be able to take the time to cuddle more, simply play board games more, go for walks more, and hug more. God has given us one go-around on this earth. We have on chance to love for all we're worth, with our love and His. Every moment counts. That doesn't mean race through your day and get everything out of it you can. To me, it means savor each moment of that day. BREATHE in the essence of each other. Breathe out the stresses, the non-important. Breathe in and let God's light and life fill you with hope and warmth. And Breathe that out on all those around you.

Amen! I got my own reality check at the end of the year and realized that I'm running way too much on adrenaline and not nearly enough on joy!
