My word is Rest
I had no ambition or desire to choose a word for the year, but recently, reading about a blog friend's choice of her word "kindness", I suddenly felt "rest" is my word for 2018.
After a difficult year in 2017 and a broken heart in 2016 in which I focused on survival, I hope this year will be one in which I rest, love and rebuild.
Also, today I am rather sick and have been resting and fell asleep for an hour at 1:30 in the afternoon, so Rest seems needed and healing.
My aim is not a lazy rest, ha ha, but one to build strength so I can find joy again, and be a support to my sons who are a mighty source of support for me, and to also find the power to help my friends and friends I've yet to meet. And lots of other activities including my hope I may write again, a new book or find a publisher for two that need a publisher home. Rest will remind me that I want to slow down at times. One recent Sunday our minister said that Hurry is a stealer of Peace, and I think Rest will allow space for Peace.
So hello to Rest.
If you have chosen a word or theme for 2018 let me know in a comment. Everyone's choice seems to suit them perfectly. If you aim to enter the year free style without choosing a word I understand and cheer you on too.
